Periodic table's design gets an elemental challenge

New Periodic TableQuote:Many people have attempted to better the arrangement of the 111 fundamental elements, but no one has been able to supplant the original, created in 1869 by Russian chemist Dmitri Mendeleev with 63 known elements. I read a book by Paul Strathern - Mendeleyev's Dream - A Quest for the Elements. It was the people who discovered and ultimately classified the elements. A good read.Mr. P. The one thing of which I am positive is that there is much of which to be negative - Mr. P.The pain in hell has two sides. The kind you can touch with your hand; the kind you can feel in your heart...Scorsese's "Mean Streets"I came to kick ass and chew Bubble Gum...and I am all out of Bubble Gum - They Live, Roddy Piper

Very interesting. I like it. Quote:What makes his table distinct is its galaxy design. "It should be looked at like a work of art as much as a work of science," says StewartQuote:"Just look at the night sky and feel a sense of wonder," he says.Charts and tables inspire in us a sense of organized reference, but the galaxy...yeah, that does inspire a sense of wonder. And shouldn't we have a sense of wonder when contemplating (or just looking up) the elements?Marti in Mexico

I have always been interested in Chemistry and in particular, the periodic table. I am partial to the old version...but I can adapt.Mr. P.

Chemical Periodicity is a theory! The theory keeps changing. The theory is under dispute. TEACH ALTERNATIVE THEORIES TO OUR CHILDREN!Earth. Air. Fire. Water: The truth is constant.
