Could we still find new chemical elements on Earth
Is it possible that Earth still contains some elements that are yet to be found?
The periodic table contains more than a hundred chemical elements, the basic building blocks of the everything around us — living and non-living.
The atomic number of an element is determined by how many protons are found in the nucleus of an atom of that element.
Some of the elements are well-known, such as hydrogen (1), oxygen (8) and carbon (6), while are less so; seaborgium (106), flerovium (114) and darmstadtium (110). More than three-quarters of the elements on the periodic table exist naturally on Earth or elsewhere in the Universe.
