If you haven't heard already, 4 new elements have been discovered. Elements 113, 115,117,118 have been found.

118 belongs to Nobel elements.

7th row of the table is officially completed.

Everyone needs to start updating their text books and their copies of the table they keep tucked away in their year planners.

What do you think of this? Do think more will be discovered?

I wonder whether the term 'discovered' should be used when 'discovering' these new elements and they are synthetic. They are created and not found in nature. Unless of course they could potentially be found elsewhere in the universe - which is unlikely due to their radioactivity/low stability..
I imagine science will pursue this discovery of new elements endlessly. I think it is possible to find more with developing technology but it would be incredibly difficult as their half-lives are so minute.
An interesting question is whether there is any use in them!

The reference to nerds persuaded me to click on this thread :emo: But yes, I heard about this over breakfast this morning

For anyone who's interested, here's an article which provides some more information on the matter

I suppose if there was a chance of them being found in nature, they would have taken absolute yonks to fuse and the star would probably be billions/zillions of times bigger than ours and most definitely turn into a super massive black hole.

It probably would be more likely if we were in a multiverse as the laws of physics would be completely different than ours.

Yes but they were officially declared as new elements after years of peer review and accepted by the IUPAC who regulate the official table today so the discoveries aren't officially "real" until it's been announced by a governing/regulatory body.

They've already been named. Well, 3 of them anyways. One of them hasn't been names yet.

Apparently the names are only temporary though so they might change.
