New element named 'copernicium'


news.bbc.co.uk

Discovered 13 years ago, and officially added to the periodic table just weeks ago, element 112 finally has a name.

It will be called "copernicium", with the symbol Cp, in honour of the astronomer Nicolaus Copernicus.

A very fitting tribute to one of the greats of astronomy and science.

en.wikipedia.org...




Nicolaus Copernicus (19 February 1473 – 24 May 1543) was the first astronomer to formulate a comprehensive heliocentric cosmology, which displaced the Earth from the center of the universe. His epochal book, De revolutionibus orbium coelestium (On the Revolutions of the Celestial Spheres), published in 1543 just before he died, is often regarded as the starting point of modern astronomy and the defining epiphany that began the Scientific Revolution. His heliocentric model, with the sun at the center of the universe, demonstrated that the observed motions of celestial objects can be explained without putting the Earth at rest in the center of the universe. His work stimulated further scientific investigations, becoming a landmark in the history of modern science that is now often referred to as the Copernican Revolution.

In case anyone wants to know what this new element actually is:


Element 112 is the heaviest element in the periodic table, 277 times heavier than hydrogen. It is produced by a nuclear fusion, when bombarding zinc ions onto a lead target. As the element already decays after a split second, its existence can only be proved with the help of extremely fast and sensitive analysis methods. Twenty-one scientists from Germany, Finland, Russia and Slovakia have been involved in the experiments that led to the discovery of element 112.

Very cool. Copernicus joins the ranks of Noble, Einstein, and Bohr.

Haha I thought I had this one covered, it never actually occured to me to put more info about the element!

Cheers mate!

so this element was put on the periodic table yet we'll never have any use for it because it only exists for a split second?

That's right, but the fact that it only exists for fractions of seconds doesn't mean it doesn't exist!

Poor ol' Copernicus.

Below is a list of presentations of how the subliminal words of "SEX" and "COPULATION" are hidden and associated within the new elements name Copernicium.

Nicolaus Copernicus birth ( of 19 February 1473 ), and his death date ( of 24 May 1543) together contain the subliminal word "SEX". The alphabet letter of "S" is the 19th letter of the alphabet, and this 19th letter-number corresponds to the same day of the month that Copernicus was born. The fifth alphabet letter of "E" corresponds to May ( the fifth month ) when Copernicus died. The alphabet letter of "X" is the 24th letter, and this corresponds to the same day of the month of his death.

The alphabetic letters of and the atomic number digits of the two elements that are used to create copernicium, both also create the subliminal word "SEX". ZINC + LEAD = "SEX" > "S"=Mirror reverse image of Z, "E" in LEAD, "X"=24th letter=("I" 9th)+("N" 14th)+("A" 1st letter).

The numeric digits of the two atomic numbers for both ZINC "30" and LEAD "82" ( "30" + "82" = 112 ) that are used to make copernicium have a subliminal of the word "SEX" > manipulate numeric digits of these digits "3" "8" "2" > "S" = 19th letter=( 38 ) / 2, "E"= 3 + 2 = 5th letter, "X" = 24th letter = 3 X 8.

This "announcing date of July 16" is another major association between this new name of copernicium and the concept of copulation. July is the seventh month, and notice that in the spelling of seventh there is almost the word sex ("sev"). The word eve as in (copulaters) adam and eve, is present in the word seventh. Also the number sixteen is very close to the phrase "sex teen"as it is during the teenage years that most people have their greatest interest in first learning about copulation.

Another association between this new name of copernicium and with copulation is that Nickolas Copernicus in his astronomy work observed the mating and attraction of the "heavenly body worlds" as they are attracted to each other and also to the sun ( sunshine ). I would greatly appreciate it if anyone would tell me of any other associations that they can think of between this new name of copernicium and with the concept of copulation, as I am greatly interested.

This new name copernicium is not far from the appearance of the word copulation and thus from watching ( cium ) copulation. Also copernicium's number 112 relates to copulation. In copulation two one's get together ( of their number one area's ) to make a reproduction multiplying symbol of a 2 in order to multiply. Is this logical 1 + 1 = 2 ?

The new element 112 named copernicium, got this new name close to the date of July 16, 2009. Notice that seven times sixteen equals the number 112. This seems to be a little like sexual multiplication.

Never is a finite word. The element exists for a split second "with the current tech". That, of course, is always subject to change as technology improves.

I am rightfully baffled. What just happened here?
