New element

The Times reports the discovery of a new element. This would be number 117, so it has been temporarily named "Ununseptium" (Latin for 117).

Clearly the name should eventually be Unobtainium. Write your local congressperson or scientist!

  1. Write to Tom Lehrer as well! Maybe he will rerecord The Elements. According to wikipedia, he left off at 102.
