Scientist know that nuclear fusion could produce enough energy to sustain our world throughout the remainder of its existence, but no one has ever been able to produce controlled nuclear fusion. John Dalton is known for creating the basis for the current atomic model, but did you know the first atomic model predates his by over 1,000 years? According to the second law of thermodynamics, our universe will end in a horrible heat death. Did you know that there is a large number of people who think that the Large Hadron Collider will actually create a black hole that will engulf the Earth from the surface? These are just a few of the interesting facts that you can find in the links below.

Periodic Table of the Elements Element 'ununseptium' to fill periodic table gap Rachel Courtland, reporter Welcome, ununseptium. With 117 protons, it is the latest super-heavy element to be created in the laboratory. The discovery fills in a gap in the current periodic table of elements, and bolsters the idea that we may yet find an "island of stability" among heavyweight atoms, with elements long-lived enough to be useful. Uranium, which contains 92 protons, is the heaviest element that is stable in nature. This effort has created a host of new atoms, containing as many as 118 protons. Now a team of US and Russian researchers, led by Yuri Oganessian of the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research in Dubna, Russia, has filled it by firing calcium atoms into a target of berkelium atoms. Finding ununseptium was a lengthy process. The raw stuff needed to produce the atoms was also hard to come by. Like its super-heavy mates, element 117 is quite short-lived, lasting just a fraction of a second. Copernicium, which contains 112 protons, was the last element to be named.

The Periodic Table of the Muppets A comprehensive depiction of many memorable Muppet characters from throughout the years (and some not-so-memorable ones as well). Each square represents a different character and indicates the primary Muppeteer(s) for that character, as well as the year and production in which the character made its debut. Borders align with hair/hat colour, background aligns with skin/fur colour, and colour of the abbreviated name represents nose colour (for characters with noses that is). The separate sections are based on the show the characters were either created for or most often associated with. Available as prints and more at Redbubble and Society6.

Two new elements are named on the Periodic Table - even though they've only ever existed for less than a second Elements created in Russian particle acceleratorElement 114 is now 'Flerovium' - named after the lab where it was createdScientists unable to discover their properties as they disappear so quickly By Rob Waugh Published: 09:46 GMT, 1 June 2012 | Updated: 09:46 GMT, 1 June 2012 They have only ever existed for less than a second, but two new elements were named yesterday - Flerovium and Livermorium. Don't expect to find lumps of them lying around - the elements were created by slamming lighter atoms together in a particle accelerator. They joined the Periodic Table of elements - which hangs on science classroom walls around the world - last year, but were only named today. What used to be element 114 is now flerovium, honoring the Flerov Laboratory of Nuclear Reactions in Dubna, Russia, where it was created. They have only ever existed for less than a second, but two new elements were named yesterday - Flerovium and Livermorium The chemical symbols are Fl and Lv.
