Closing Thoughts

Statue in Chamberlain Square, Birmingham by Francis John Williamson.

Priestley’s discoveries are very important. They paved the way for other experiments to be done by scientists with more technology to better understand gases.  A couple universities were also named in honor of Priestley’s experiments.  Many have been able to learn from his life.  Some would also say that it is quite amiable of him to stand so firmly for his religious beliefs, along with his scientific ones.  A mob burned down his house because he refused to give up his stand on the revolutions and religion.  Regardless of if you agree with him or not, the man wasn’t your typical scientist.  He was very smart, and proved this in his experiments.  He deserves to be remembered and revered in the science world, and is to this day.
