The team at periodicvideos has created a TED-Ed Lesson for every element of the periodic table. This video will be about rhenium, an extremely expensive metal, often used in aircraft engines.
Until the discovery of rhenium sulfide in 1994 in the volcano Kudriavy, on the island of Iturup, there was no evidence of any rhenium mineral in nature.
If you had discovered an element, would you decide to name it after your favorite river, or a different natural landmark?
