Scientists have successfully studied einsteinium — one of the most elusive and heaviest elements on the periodic table — for the first time in decades.

The achievement brings chemists closer to discovering the so-called "island of stability," where some of the heftiest and shortest-lived elements are thought to reside.

The U.S. Department of Energy first discovered einsteinium in 1952 in the fall-out of the first hydrogen bomb test.

The element does not occur naturally on Earth and can only be produced in microscopic quantities using specialized nuclear reactors.

It is also hard to separate from other elements, is highly radioactive and rapidly decays, making it extremely difficult to study.

Researchers from the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) at the University of California, recently created a 233-nanogram sample of pure einsteinium and carried out the first experiments on the element since the 1970s.


In doing so they were able to uncover some of the element's fundamental chemical properties for the first time.

This is kinda' big. If they can bring these elusive heavy elements into the proverbial "island of stability" the sky is the limit. Truly.

Could open up a lot of possibilities.

Yeah, seeing open minds, and closed minds. Common sense is dead.

That is quite interesting.

Sorry not on here much lately, been busy moving.

Ice storm / down power lines put us out o' commission for the last couple days. gaah.gif

In the meantime, use the basic elements you know to survive.

When my electricity failed I used whatever I had at hand to get what I wanted.

Survival and comfort.

I made it work too.

What's your point Jay Rodney?

Ice everywhere, we've had our share this season. Good article. This discovery could lead to all kinds of great and terrible things.

It's not us who were out of commission, our data center was! We had another site offline simultaneously while working on transferring a third. panic.gif

We're good on a survival level, we got our ducks in a row.

Dollars to Donuts= "I'll bet you Dollars to Donuts"

Used back when a Doughnut cost a Nickle

Split the Atom, first application for the Tech was build a Bomb, ya gotta love that thinking LOL!

"War Head" Mental State, just another State of Mind that causes High Thinking to Avoid Contact.

Whats next for Humanity?

Element 99 Bubble over the U.S. to protect the War Head People from The People they Torment?

The few who've been aboard UFO's and watched Timeline events on Earth, have witnessed the Willful Ignorance of Man Killing Man
Insanity, we are never impressed.

and rightly so.

Hey, prepare for survival in a fucked up world. Who knows how to do that?

Well, you're still alive so you evidently have some level of knowledge.
