Building New Elements: Beyond the Periodic Table

Like modern day and much more scientific alchemists, nuclear chemists work to construct elements that don’t exist on earth but may reside on proton-packed Islands of Stability off the far end of the periodic table, where these new heaviest elements could be long lived. Learn how six new elements were added to the periodic table in the last seven years, and the techniques scientists use to construct and deduce the physical and chemical properties of new elements from just a few ephemeral atoms.
