So what can this be used for, other than making people buy new periodic tables?

Americium, one of the transuranium elements that's even heavier than plutonium, can be used in smoke detectors and has been tossed around as an idea for a rocket fuel. Some of the other actinides are pretty stable, as well. 113 is way beyond that group but doesn't have enough protons to be a good candidate for the island of stability.

So it's fun for scientist bragging rights and possible synthesis of even heavier elements but not much else.

They can confirm if the periodic trends hold true whenever they synthesise a new element. Pure science ftw. Knowledge ftw.
post #16 of 40
they did 111 roentgenium and copernicium 112, and They skipped 113 for a reason, because often time these super heavy elements are very unstable, especially with the odd numbers. Elements 114 and 116 have already been named, Flerovium and livermorium. Glad to see them filling the odd number gaps, 115 is going to be another hard one to synthesize tongue.gif

In engineering, fiction, and thought experiments, unobtainium is any fictive, extremely rare, costly, or impossible material, or (less commonly) device needed to fulfill a given design for a given application. The properties of any particular unobtainium depend on the intended use. For example, a pulley made of unobtainium might be massless and frictionless; however, if used in a nuclear rocket, unobtainium would be light, strong at high temperatures, and resistant to radiation damage. The concept of unobtainium is often applied flippantly or humorously.

The word unobtainium is derived from unobtainable + -ium (the suffix for a number of elements). It pre-dates the similar-sounding IUPAC systematic element names, such as Ununoctium.

Since the late 1950s,[1][2] aerospace engineers have used the term "unobtainium" when referring to unusual or costly materials, or when theoretically considering a material perfect for their needs in all respects, except that it does not exist. By the 1990s, the term was in wide use, even in formal engineering papers such as "Towards unobtainium [new composite materials for space applications]."[3] The word unobtainium may well have been coined in the aerospace industry to refer to materials capable of withstanding the extreme temperatures expected in reentry. Aerospace engineers are frequently tempted to design aircraft which require parts with strength or resilience beyond that of currently available materials.

Later, unobtainium became an engineering term for practical materials that really exist, but are difficult to get.[4] For example, during the development of the SR-71 Blackbird spy plane, Lockheed engineers at the "Skunk Works" under Clarence "Kelly" Johnson used unobtainium as a dysphemism for titanium. Titanium allowed a higher strength-to-weight ratio at the high temperatures the Blackbird would reach, but the Soviet Union controlled its supply and was trying to deprive the US armed forces of this valuable resource.[nb 1] Eventually, through a European front company, a large quantity of titanium found its way to the United States.[nb 2] (source: wikipedia)

Back on topic, how long did they synthesize it for? If the time it existed must be measured in picoseconds, then I don't know that credit for discovery is really in order.

If confirmed, the achievement will mark the first time Japan has discovered a new element, and should make Japan the first Asian country with naming rights to a member of the periodic table. Until now, only scientists in the United States, Russia and Germany have had that chance.

LOL, is there any history before the US of A ?

We have created stable elements and isotopes. However, none of this higher elements will probably ever be stable under "normal" conditions because they are too large.

Existed before? Probably.... since things smash and squish together all the time.

But these elements are usually highly unstable so they'll only last for less than a second in most cases.
There are limits though..... the strong force cannot hold such large atoms together. I mean it will eventually require so much force to hold an atom together that it might just fuse or collapse on itself.
