What is the name of the chemical element named after Albert Einstein?

  • Nobelium
  • Einsteinium correct

    Einsteinium is an element that does not occur in nature and was actually discovered during the first successful hydrogen bomb test by G.G. Harvey, A. Ghiorso, S.G. Thompson, and G.R. Choppin. Much like its namesake, einsteinium excels for scientific research because of its very short lifespan. Some people say that einsteinium could be harmful to humans because it is radioactive, but there is so little research done on einsteinium that it makes that theory all relative.
