Element 666 to be Named

Chemistry is in the news this week with the confirmation by a research group in Sweden of the super heavy element number 115, previously reported by Russian researchers.

Element 115 currently has a temporary name, ununpentium.

In anticipation of the future discovery of the ultra-super-duper heavy element number 666, I’d like to propose the name unrepentium.

  1. I am so glad you like William Blake’s artwork—I sure do! And long before it was worked into “Red Dragon.”
