The team at periodicvideos has created a TED-Ed Lesson for every element of the periodic table. This one is about meitnerium. We've made a new video about element 109, which was created in Darmstadt, Germany. The professor also gets a chance to put forward his suggested name for an as-yet unnamed element.
The name meitnerium was approved in 1997, along with the names for elements 104-108.
What about you? If you could choose a scientist to name a new element after, who would it be?
