We all know the Periodic Table of Elements — it's that thing with the pretty colors that hung on your chemistry class wall. While we may all recognize the venerable chart, we may not really know it (unless it's done up as a Star Wars version). Now, students and science buffs can actually interact with it thanks to QR codes for each element.
The periodic table of elements now officially has two more members of the club, Flerovium and Livermorium. We'll pause while chemistry students everywhere begin to weep, and science geeks do a jig at these two elements finally receiving approval after a year's worth of research.
Here's an awesome periodic table table video by Theo Gray, 2011 winner of the ACS Grady Stack Award for Interpreting Chemistry for the Public.
Sometimes, you just get so angry and you give in to using profanity, but it's the same old boring F-bomb, time and again.
