Histories Hidden in the Periodic Table

  • The modern element-hunting era began in the nineteen-thirties, when the physicist Ernest Lawrence directed scientists at the University of California, Berkeley, to develop a series of devices, called cyclotrons, that use electricity to blast protons into foil targets installed inside metal chambers.
  • Bursting through the stems of the mushroom clouds, trying to keep their planes from rattling apart, the pilots, Champan writes, collected “elements usually only present in merging neutron stars.” (One pilot, Jimmy Robinson, escaped from the nuclear dust storm to find that his engines had stalled; he died in an attempted water landing.) Later, in a Berkeley laboratory, the physicist Glenn Seaborg and his colleagues detected two hundred atoms of what would become element No. 99 in a filter pulled from one of the planes.
