Element 117 Discovery

Culminating a decade-long journey to expand the periodic table, an international team of scientists from Russia and the U.S. - including two Department of Energy national labs and two universities - has discovered the newest superheavy element; element 117.

The experiment produced six atoms of the element. Element 117 was the only missing element in row seven of the periodic table.

Physicists say the discovery of new elements expand our understanding of the universe and provide important tests of nuclear theories. Lawrence Livermore National Lab director George Miller calls it a significant breakthrough for science that will provide new insight into the makeup of the universe. He calls it a "testimony to the strength of science and technology at the partner institutions.

Since 1940, 26 new elements beyond uranium have been added to the periodic table.

NASA Global Hawk

NASA has successfully completed the first science flight of the Global Hawk unpiloted aircraft system over the Pacific Ocean. The flight was the first of five scheduled for this month's Global Hawk Pacific, or GloPac, mission to study atmospheric science over the Pacific and Arctic oceans.

The Global Hawk is a robotic plane that can fly to altitudes above 60,000 feet, and as far as 11,000 nautical miles. Operators pre-program a flight path, then the plane flies itself for as long as 30 hours.

GloPac researchers plan to directly measure and sample greenhouse gases, ozone-depleting substances, aerosols, and constituents of air quality in the upper troposphere and lower stratosphere.

During its inaugural flight, the plane flew approximately 45-hundred nautical miles. The mission is a joint project with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
