As per Maxwells's classical electrodynamics, any charged particle associated with acceleration should emitt energy. As the electron gradually looses energy, it traces spiral path moving closer to nucleus,instead of circular path; finally collapsing into nucleus leading to annhilation - virtually the death of atom.

As atoms are not exhibiting continuous spectra, it is an evidence that electrons are not tracing spiral path; and some thing else is missing in Rutherford atomic model, that paved the way for new theories like Bohr's Theory.
