Let’s Begin…

The team at periodicvideos has created a TED-Ed Lesson for every element of the periodic table. Discover uranium, element number 92, the so-called "bogeyman of the periodic table".

The uranium-based atomic bomb, which destroyed Hiroshima and the plutonium bomb, which destroyed Nagasaki in 1945, were the first and only uses of nuclear weapons in war to date. Hopefully we are smart enough to avoid using such weapons again.
