Awesome! Just goes to show there are still discoveries being made

I don't envy the Chemistry students that will be forced to buy the next edition of text book though...

New basic algebra textbooks are being made on an annual basis 250 years after we pretty much had it nailed down.

Is there a huge textbook lobby that the states cave into? I just don't understand why each school district can't use their choice of texts as long as they contain the relevant curriculum that is more or less static.

I'm more concerned that SpaceChem won't be updated.

Good info. Stupid article, or at least bad editorial style chosen for the article.

Geesh! I feel bad for all those high school chemistry students. Just when they thought they had it all memorized......

Well it's more about the general theory behind the table and the new ones should follow it just the same. Unless we have new physics to deal with.

Many elements have been named after the places they were discovered. (Yttrium, ytterbium, terbium, and erbium, all named after the same town, is a particularly egregious example.) With that, perhaps element 113, having been discovered in Japan, can be named Tokium. Imagine the culture shift. Generations of stoners would be divided by whether they called their favorite recreation "420" or "Element 113".

I like that. Was the institution in Tokyo or elsewhere in Japan ? I have a grim vision of hiroshimium or nagasakium.

They usually do. The discoverers get to name them.

If it's a systematic name, such as ununoctium or ununtrium, they will get new names
