Ep. 5: We Filled Up the Periodic Table, Now What?

The Periodic Table is nicely filled out with 118 elements, but don’t be fooled—the search is on for element 119. The question is, do we have the tools to discover it? And, if we do, what might it be like? In this episode of Orbitals, we celebrate the International Year of the Periodic Table by chatting about the exciting possibilities with IUPAC executive director Dr. Lynne Soby and researcher Dr. Dawn Shaughnessy, who has five elemental discoveries on her curriculum vitae.
