Man-made Elements

Are scientists still making elements (even if the half-life is what? like a nanosecond or less?) …and what numbered element are we up to on the Periodic Table? - Jinx

We were up to 118 in 2001 but Lawrence Berkley National Laboratory withdrew the discovery. Los Alamos has them all.

Of course the best periodic table is the University of Kentucky’s Periodic Table of Comics that’s real science.

The world’s heaviest element.

Ironically, my friend just sends me an email out of the blue about “Administration”, the newest element…with 1 neutron, 12 assistant neutrons, 75 deputy neutrons, and 111 assistant deputy neutrons, giving it an atomic mass of 312. These 312 particles are held together by a force called morons, which are surrounded by vast quantities of lepton-like particles called peons. Since Administratium has no electrons, it is inert. :wink:

What about the `islands of stability’ thought to exist really high in the periodic table? Have we reached any, or is it just nonsense?

Has Darmstadt proposed names for elements 110-112?
