Take a deep breath. Feel that? That’s oxygen, moving into your lungs and bloodstream. Many scientists are credited with helping discover and name this element, including Antione Lavosier. But the man who was the first to pin down this important gas is Joseph Priestley. He performed experiments that also acknowledged photosynthesis. He hasn’t had the easiest of lives, one full of political and religious torment. He also did experiments on other things such as photosynthesis and carbonated water. Still, somehow he managed to perform his oxygen experiments and make sure his name is forever written in our textbooks as one of the best scientists of his time.
