The atomic theory has helped us in many things like a visible object, all of it immersed among these invisible, randomly jostling molecules, wouldn't move as much most of the time.

Not only did that help our modern society, but also do to these science classes that people are using to be successful in being a scientist is actually working out. Scientist now a days are helping people get cured by some of the infectious diseases that are being spread out and most of the people who are out there sick are waiting to be cured by some medicine many of the several scientist are trying to invent.
