Nos. 113, 115 on periodic table.
Russian scientists claim they have created two 'new' elements, 113 and 115 on the periodic table. Just a few atoms of the newly discovered elements, 113 and 115, existed for split seconds after being created in a particle accelerator. They represent unusual forms of matter with properties that go well beyond those of the 92 elements that occur naturally on Earth.
 

Superheavies may be abundantly generated by supernova explosions in stars. Or perhaps they were fused during the fiery moments that signaled the dawn if the universe.

Here on the ground, such tiny amounts of superheavies formed in atom smashers probably will never find an everyday use.


Oddly enough, the BBC released an article four years ago about the discovery of two new superheavy elements.

Another article with a bit more information, such as the decay time for element 115 and a possible explanation for the long decay time of element 113.

Didn't the Russians claim to have made this element over a year ago? i Why is this "news" being spoon-fed to us now over the mainstream media?
