Will tin be the next super material

Will tin be the next super material | elements | Scoop.it
Daniel Kilkeary's insight:

the intresting thing about this it will change somthing in every day lives. But i think this is a good thing except that where will all the old computers go considering most will just buy a new one. So in conclusion i think this is good as long as we only change the micro chip.

Element of the week: meitnerium

Element of the week: meitnerium | elements | Scoop.it
GrrlScientist: This element wasn't even named until roughly 200 trillion half-lives had passed after the birth and death of the original atom
Daniel Kilkeary's insight:

Element 109 this element is named in honor of physicist and mathematician Lise Meitner. It is a silvery metal at room temperature­­ but cannot be seen by the naked eye. It is a very unstable element that is very radioactive with this the scientists are not surprised because of the amount of radioactive materials that Lise handled.  She was important because she conducted an experiment that correctly explained why when uranium underwent nuclear fission to produce other, smaller, elements.  She was not recognized for this achievement with a Nobel Prize, although her supervisor, Otto Hahn, was which must have been because he was the leader in the group kind of like the captain of the ship.

Daniel Kilkeary's insight:

This article is quite interesting because it describes how these elements are everything and can make anything. The article also says that there are almost one hundred elements but only 88 of them are naturally made on earth which I think it’s neat because it shows that we are able to make new elements and that we can progress on finding and making more. A few paragraphs down it describe the different types of atoms there are like isotopes and ions. I also like how it describes the structure of an atom in the third part of the article. It also describes how you can find the protons neutrons and elections.

New elements join the periodic table

New elements join the periodic table | elements | Scoop.it

Elements 110, 111 and 112 have been named darmstadtium (Ds), roentgenium (Rg) and copernicium (Cn). Known as super-heavy elements, they are large, unstable atoms that can only be created in the laboratory and quickly break down into other elements.


Via Michele Diodati
Daniel Kilkeary's insight:

At an annual General Assembly of the International Union of Pure which is a group of scientists that come from all over the world and share their discoveries and Applied Physics confirmed three new elements to the periodic table. Elements 110, 111 and 112 these have been have been named copernicium (Cn) darmstadtium (Ds), roentgenium (Rg). With this they are now making a new periodic table with these new elements found in our atmosphere and below ground.
