There are many elements. Among them are synthetically prepared (man-made) elements, which are possible because of the Nuclear Age. They include:
61 promethium (Pm)
93 neptunium (Np)
94 plutonium (Pu)
95 americium (Am)
96 curium (Cm)
97 berkelim (Bk)
102 nobelium (No)
103 lawrencium (Lr)
43 technetium (Tc)
99 einsteinium (Es)
100 Fermium (Fm)
Famous scientists inspired the following:
1. Curium Cm
2. Einsteinium Es
3. Lawrencium Lw
The majority of man-made elements were made at the University of California USA, in a machine called the Cyclotron. The Cyclotron was invented by Professor Ernest Lawrence. Lawrencium was made at the University of California in 1961 and named in his honour.
4. Mendelevium Md
Made in 1955 at the University of California. It was named after a world famous Russian Chemist Dimitri Mendeleev.
- Born Maria Skłodowska in Warsaw
- Obtained her higher degrees and conducted her subsequent scientific work in Paris.
- A pioneer in the field of radioactivity and the first person honored with two Nobel Prizes - in physics and chemistry.
- Created a theory of radioactivity, techniques for isolating radioactive isotopes, and discovered two new elements, polonium and radium.
- Born in Paris, educated by his father.
- In his early teens, showed a strong aptitude for mathematics and geometry.
- By 18, he had completed the equivalent of a higher degree, but did not proceed immediately to a doctorate due to lack of money. Instead, he worked as a laboratory instructor.
- Apioneer in crystallogaphy, netism, piezoelectricity and radioactivity, and Nobel laureate.
- In 1903, received the Nobel Prize In Physics with his wife, Marie Curie, and Henri Becquerel.
- Born in Germany in 1879 and at 17, renounced his German citizenship to avoid military service.
- Enrolled in 1896 at the Polytechnic of Zurich.
- Widely regarded as one of the most influential scientists and intellectuals of all time, and the father of modern physics.
- Special and general theories of relativity.
- Predicted thedeflection of light by gravity and gravitational lensing.
- Explained the Brownian movement of molecules.
- Publishedmore than 150 non-scientific works.
- Born in South Dakota, and attended St. Olaf College in Minnesota.
- Completed his Ph.D. degree in physics in 1925, making him somewhat unusual in his field —a very promising young physical scientist who had received his entire education in the United States.
- Invented and used thecyclotron atom-smasher beginning in 1929.
- In 1939, awarded the Nobel Prize In Physics for his work in inventing the cyclotron and developing its applications.
- First recipient of the Sylvanus Thayer Award.
- Born in Russia, thought to be the youngest of 14 siblings.
- At the age of 13, after the passing of his father and the destruction of his mother's factory by fire, Mendeleev attended the Gymnasium in Tobolsk.
- In 1849, the now poor Mendeleev family relocated to Saint Petersburg, where he entered the Main Pedagogical Institute in 1850.
- Created the first version of the periodic table of elements. Using the table, he predicted the properties of elements yet to be discovered.
