Such contrast!

Subatomic is available in MELPA. Assuming MELPA is added to your archive list you can list the available packages by typing M-x list-packages, look for subatomic-theme, mark it for installation by typing i and then execute (install) by typing x.

(Or you can install it directly with M-x package-install RET subatomic-theme)

After that, enable the theme by M-x load-theme RET subatomic.

Or if you want to do it in your init file, add:

(load-theme 'subatomic t)

Manual installation

If you prefer, you can install Subatomic manually by downloading subatomic-theme.el and place it somewhere in your custom-theme-load-path.

You can set your custom-theme-load-path by adding this to your .emacs.d or .emacs.d/init.el:

(add-to-list 'custom-theme-load-path "~/.emacs.d/themes")

You should now be able to load Subatomic with M-x load-theme RET subatomic!
