After studying in Japan Hantaro studied abroad in Vienna, Berlin, and Munich he attended the first International Congress of Physics in Paris. Nagaoka was very interested by the kinetic theory of gasses and work done about the stability of Saturn’s rings.

These two interests helped him create his model of an atom, with a very large nucleus and electrons circulating it. Nagaoka did no tests to test his theory, but it was later tested by Ernest Rutherford. On December 11, 1950 Hantaro Nagaoka died and is now considered one of the best Japanese scientists.
