Let’s Begin…

The team at periodicvideos has created a TED-Ed Lesson for every element of the periodic table. This one is about rutherfordium.

The Joint Institute for Nuclear Research in Dubna (then USSR) named element 104 kurchatovium (Ku), but the University of California (Berkeley, USA) named it rutherfordium (Rf), which was the name that was accepted by IUPAC in 1997.
