Do you know that the word “Einstenium” is not some science parody mash-up? Einsteinium was discovered as a component of the debris of the first hydrogen bomb explosion in 1952. Too bad, for security reasons, these observations in late 1952 and early 1953 could not be published in the open literature.  But the full story of the discovery of elements 99 and 100 was finally published in mid-1955 by a group of authors of the laboratories involved. And yes, the elements 99 was named after the genius, Albert Einstein. What a new information right? So snorgtees has this shirt, which you can bragging on and say “Do you know that the word “Einstenium” is not some science parody mash-up?”
