The first published outline of the chemiosmotic hypothesis of biological energy transduction was published fifty years ago. It took many years for the ideas to be accepted despite their elegance. We outline the basis and history of the hypothesis and consider what can be learnt from it about the development of new ideas in science and what is required to persuade the community of a new idea given a pre-existing model.
