Designed by Professor C.W. Leming and D.H. Garrison at Henderson State University, the apparatus allows students to repeat the famous alpha particle scattering experiment suggested by Ernest Rutherford in 1908. Fundamental to the discovery of the atom's structure, the experiment demonstrates that the charge of the atomic nucleus is concentrated at the center of the atom.
