The idea that all matter was composed of tiny, similar pieces was first put forth by Greek philosophers Democritus and Leucippus thousands of years ago, but the idea remained theory until the 20th century.
According to Einstein's famous equation, all matter is made of energy, but all matter is also made of fundamental particles. In the 1950s and 1960s scientists developed the equipment necessary to explore the realm of the 'very small' more completely, and discovered a wide variety of particles that were initially dubbed 'The Particle Zoo'.
