    Scientists Welcome Two New Elements to the Periodic Table

    By KATY STEINMETZ – Thu Jun 9, 2:10 pm ET
    You may have grown up thinking you knew what was what in science, back when Pluto was a planet, the opposite sex had cooties, and the last 10% of every beverage was known to be backwash. But things change, including the periodic table, which just made two new elements official.
    Sadly, they don't have names yet, according to the AP. So for now, we'll just have to call them #114 and #116 (numbers which refer to the number of protons in their nuclei and which give them their unique boxes on the table). We know that they last for less than a second, and that "the new elements were made by slamming two lighter elements together in the hopes that they'd stick." … ationyahoo
    well that's amazing that we are adding elements

      And iron, americium, ruthenium, uranium
      Europium, zirconium, lutetium, vanadium
      And lanthanum and osmium and astatine and radium
      And gold and protactinium and indium and gallium
      And iodine and thorium and thulium and thallium
      There's yttrium, ytterbium, actinium, rubidium
      And boron, gadolinium, niobium, iridium
      And strontium and silicon and silver and samarium
      And bismuth, bromine, lithium, beryllium and barium
      There's holmium and helium and hafnium and erbium
      And phosphorous and francium and fluorine and terbium
      And manganese and mercury, molybdenum, magnesium
      Dysprosium and scandium and cerium and caesium
      And lead, praeseodymium and platinum, plutonium
      Palladium, promethium, potassium, polonium
      And tantalum, technetium, titanium, tellurium
      And cadmium and calcium and chromium and curium
      There's sulphur, californium and fermium, berkelium
      And also mendelevium, einsteinium, nobelium
      And argon, krypton, neon, radon, xenon, zinc and rhodium

      There are the only ones of which the news has come to Harvard
      And there may be many others but they haven't been discovered."
