This Brilliant Graphic Shows You Which Country Discovered Every Element In The Periodic Table

Alex Heber, Business Insider Australia
April 28, 2014

When it comes to discovering elements the United Kingdom is at the top of the table.

This periodic table graphic was posted by Google Science Fair on Sunday and shows which nations discovered each element on the periodic table.

Leading the charge, the UK has discovered 24 elements, closely followed by the US with 21, Sweden with 20 and Germany with 19.

A number of old favorites including gold, mercury and copper are listed as “ancient discovery” and don’t have a country of origin.

Of course, a Russian “discovered” the periodic table itself, which was one of the most amazing leaps of science ever, considering that he did it LONG before the actual nature of atomic structure itself was even vaguely understood.

I remember learning how the orbital shells were structured and the Periodic Table made a whole lot of sense after that.

Forgotten most of it since then, but I remember the 1s2, 2s2, etc. were the initial progression (or at least what part I can remember).

It’s because white male chauvinists have a misguided worship of individual rights and ideas of property ownership. An inclusive culture worships mother gaia and so people of color have a more nuanced, holistic outlook that doesn’t discriminate between elements. /s

The Asians probably had discovered 90% of these elements prior to the year 1000A.D. Wars and dynasties destroyed them for their descendents.

Obama will be appointing a special science advisor to help the Muslim countries discover new elements for the periodic table. Someone needs to tell him the only ones they’re interested in have already been discovered: uranium (#92) and plutonium (#94)

Blacks built the pyramids its all good

The most famous pyramids are the Egyptian pyramids built as tombs for the Pharaohs. Therefore there is good reason to believe they were built by Egyptians.

That's because blacks already knew about the elements.
Afer all, it was blacks who brought the elements back from other worlds when they developed intergalactic travel.
It's only ininformed whites who think they "discovered" the elements.

Looking at this cool periodic table which shows orbitals and properties and much more, it appears that the Russians were seriously shortchanged in the discovery count. The series starting at 113 was jointly discovered by Dubna–Livermore collaboration.

Credit where credit is due, and all that...

“No Muslim countries? What are you talking about? Sweden is quite prominent.”

UK is now as well...

Quoting from the great WWII statesman Winston Churchill’s literary work, for which he won the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1953, has become a criminal offence in the UK—as it seems.

As a girl I didn't grasp the genius of the Periodic Table until I read a science fiction story about it. It concerned an Earth exploration group that had landed on once-inhabited planet but could make no sense of the language or culture of the long-dead creatures. Then a young woman with the exploration team recognizes the Periodic Table, which becomes a Rosetta Stone for them. The point was that the table was not merely our convenience but a universal truth. I wish I could remember the name or author of the story, but it was many years ago.
