I certainly have no way of seeing an electron.  I doubt even those high
energy physicists have seen it.  However, let me assure you tht if we
count our static sparks, electrons do exist.  And, if we accept
Einstein's  theory on photoelectricity,  quanta of energy can be even
included into an electron.  Even in physics, lots are proved by maths or
other types of theorization.  Not everythig real can be seen by naked
eyes or microscopes.  Even the DNA structure surely cannot be seen, but
surely proven by genetic experiments to be real and correct.
Have you seen  radio [electromagnetic] waves.  But do they exist?  If
they don't, we would not have been watching TV, . . ..
TVs do prove radiowaves exist!
By the way, the fellow, I believe, Dr. Niel Bohr, who mathematically
demonstrated the existence of electrons, did win a Nobel Prize.  So did
Watson & Crick for "getting" the DNA structure right without ever seeing
the molecule itself as drown in books today.
So, people know that not everything scientific and real is  "visible."
