Researchers in Sweden have detected a short-lived but super-heavy element dubbed ununpentium as its unofficial name.


BERLIN — Scientists in Sweden say they have confirmed the existence of a new chemical element, but its name may need some work.

Researchers at Lund University said Tuesday their find backs up claims by teams in Russia and the United States a decade ago that had remained unverified until now.

The Swedish scientists say they conducted experiments allowing them to detect the "fingerprint" of the short-lived but super-heavy element that's been dubbed ununpentium.

The name, which refers to the element's 115th place in the periodic table, is only provisional.

The element will likely get a new name if the discovery is formally approved by experts from the International Union of Pure and Applied Physics and Chemistry.

Well-known chemical elements include carbon, silicon and iron.

If I had taken chemistry or physics, I might know what you are saying "" Dick : :D

This is what really causes major islands like Guam to sink into the ocean.

Interesting.
I wonder what uses they have in mind for it.
It would be nice if something good came out of it.

ImageWhat good is something that’s going to up and vanish anyway, Bird!? Image

Lets take for instance ..’copper’ pipes.
…if they were to vanish …the water would go all over the rug! Image

And, lets take 'another' for instance …’aluminum’ siding…
…or even ‘lead’! :-?
If they were to lose all their properties …all the insulation on the house would be openly exposed to the weather! …and the wind would tear the insulation to pieces …and there’d be fluff balls all over the place! Image
...and scuba divers would all come bobbing up to the surface if their ‘lead’ weights were to all-of-a-sudden disappear! ~x(

So, what good is something that’s going to up and go vanish! Image
