ununpentium, Radioactive Element

Ununpentium, 115 Atomic Number, Isotope # 291, Uup, Periodic Table

Isotope-291It is considered to be a metal and is likely to be solid when it is kept under room temperature.  Its atomic number 115, Uup Symbol and since it has no official name, it is known as it, which is on one five in Latin. The discovery of this element was made in 2003, however official announcement was made on 2nd February 2004. Scientists from Joint Institute for Nuclear Research Dubna, Russia and scientists at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in USA discovered the element Isotope 291.

Sixteen years ago a controversial character who claimed to have analyzed ships of extraterrestrial origin referred to a strange material that served as fuel and allowed them to control gravity. Recently, a team of Swiss researchers has created atoms of element 115, whose properties reminiscent of those reported by the mysterious investigator.

Uup-SymbolAt the end of January the Paul Scherrer Institute of Switzerland announced that one of its research teams had succeeded in making some atoms of a new superheavy element, which corresponds to the number 115 in the periodic table and which has been provisionally baptized as ununpentium. It is an undoubted scientific success that for many may have a second reading even more exciting than that derived from the importance of the discovery itself. And it is that element 115, which is not found on our planet naturally, has been identified as the fuel of the alleged extraterrestrial ships that have crashed through the last decades in the United States.

Ununpentium is a Periodic Table Element, it’s Atomic # is 115, Isotope # 291, Symbol Uup

scientists-from-russia-and-usa-created-this-elementScientists from Russia and USA created this Element by  bombarding atoms americium with the calcium ions in a cyclotron. By doing this, four atoms of it can be created. Only few atoms of this element has been created so far. Till date about 50 atoms have been found during the experimentations and it has been found that most of these atoms are having the mass numbers ranging between 287 and 290. Ununpentium is known to be the second lightest element, whose nomenclature has not been done so far. Following the Mendeleev’s naming conventions for unnamed elements, this ununpentium is also sometimes called as eka-bismuth. In the period table, it is found to have taken its place as a p-block transactinide element. It belongs to the 7th period and is positioned at 15th group as heaviest pnictogen. However there is no confirmation on the behavior as the heavier homologue to the pnictogen bismuth. During the experiments, it has been observed and calculations revealed some properties, which are identical to its lighter homologues like nitrogen, phosphorus, arsenic, antimony and bismuth with some difference are expected to be there.

It has four isotopes, with half-life. Out of these half-lived isotopes

The steadiest isotope is 289Uup, whose half-life is about 220 milliseconds.

In November 1989, Bob Lazar appeared in an interview on the Las Vegas TV TV channel, very few took their explosive statements seriously. He claimed that he had been working at a supersecrete base of the US government called S-4, located near the famous Area 51. There, he maintained, he had analyzed some extraterrestrial ships that had been captured by the military.

According to Lazar, his task consisted in investigating as physical the system of propulsion of those devices and trying to reproduce, as much as possible, their advanced technology.

But, always according to Lazar’s version; It had not been possible to comprehend in its totality, and less to apply, that alien technology. If, on the contrary, it was possible to determine that the secret of the operation of the ships resided in an element that is not in our planet. Much heavier than lead and orange-looking, element 115, said Lazar; Had extraordinary properties that made it an amazing source of energy and the key to generate artificial gravity.
