Element 115

Trying to memorize the periodic table? Well, your job is going to get a bit harder! Scientists in Sweden have recently confirmed the existence of element 115. The element was first observed about a decade ago. It doesn’t occur in nature and was created in a laboratory by smashing different atoms together. Element 115 still has to be officially accepted and a name has to be assigned to it. The periodic table is an organized list of chemical elements according to certain characteristics the elements have. Here are two videos. The first is a song called “The Elements”. The other is Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe singing The Elements.
