I think it's interesting that we're still finding new elements, ones so heavy they don't exist for long. It takes dedication to measure atoms that disappear in fractions of a second.

I appreciate the hard work of the scientists. Now more research can be done on these elements, which may reveal more about how atomic forces work.

Even atoms that exist for moments can have lasting effects on scientific knowledge.
