Dead On This Day May 8

Check Out Those Dead On This Day May 8

Antoine Lavoisier was the "father of modern chemistry", was a French nobleman prominent in the histories of chemistry and biology. He found and termed both oxygen (1778) and hydrogen (1783), helped construct the metric system, put together the first extensive list of elements, and helped to reform chemical nomenclature. He was also the first to establish that sulfur was an element (1777) rather than a compound. He discovered that, although matter may change its form or shape, its mass always remains the same. He died on this day in 1794

Death is Like Taxes
We all pay the price some day
Lest All Rest In Peace
