I study in chemistry, and I have been researching a lot of the elements that make things work the way they do. If you didn't know, an element is a
base material that cannot be broken down into another substance. lol
Well, I'm curious about Meitneranium, or 109. This is one of the many elements that have been artificially created in a lab. It was discovered in the
year 1982. Well, this element has only been known to be present for a short time of 14-Thousanths of a second. I don't really know how you can call
it an element, because it breaks down so fast, that there couldn't possibly be a way to test and observed it. I'm not sure if producing it in a
large batch would work, but I don't think it would make a difference.
