Scientists have added four new elements to the periodic table, and now the researchers that discovered them will come up with names. Research on the elements had been going on since 2004, but research had been challenging because these elements decay quickly, with some remaining intact for only nanoseconds. Researchers say these very heavy elements are not naturally occurring on earth, and have to be created synthetically in a laboratory. The heaviest element found in nature is Uranium, but scientists can artificially create heavier elements by adding protons into an atomic nucleus. They say the goal in creating heavier elements is to discover just how large atoms can become.—Jim L. Wilson and Jim Sandell
