Element 117 May Soon Be Added To Periodic Table

In 2010, a group of researchers postulated the existence of another chemical element. They called it Element 117 due to the fact that the atom has 117 proton in it’s nucleus. This make it the heaviest stable element to date. After several years to investigation, the element has been confirmed by Australian scientists. The International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry will review the findings. The federation will then decide whether to formally acknowledge the element and add it to the periodic table. The element has not yet been named, but most are calling it Unuseptium.
