Moscovium is a radioactive, synthetic element about which little is known. It is classified as a metal and is expected to be solid at room temperature. It decays quickly into other elements, including nihonium.
The IUPAC also approved names for elements 113 (nihonium, with atomic symbol Nh), 117 (tennessine, Ts) and 118 (oganesson, Og).
With atomic numbers of 113, 115, 117, and 118, the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) announced the addition of these four elements to the periodic table, but one of them, Element 115 was already announced in 1989 when Bob Lazar, famous area 51 whistleblower revealed to the public that the UFOs possessed by the government were powered by a mysterious ‘Element 115.’ Of course, at that time, the claims made by Lazar were tagged as absurd as the scientific community had no knowledge of ‘Element 115’.
Thanks to the work of chemists at Lund University in Sweden, a brand new element has taken a seat at the periodic table: Element 115, or ununpentium (Uup) as it is currently known.
Ununpentium (which is sadly just the Latin/Greek for “115,” not a homage to the Intel CPU) is one of the heaviest elements ever created, extremely rare (it probably only occurs in nature a few milliseconds after a star goes supernova), and realistically won’t impact your life at all. Still, it’s a good chance to discuss how chemists create super-heavy elements — and more importantly, why.
If you’ve learned all the elements from actinium to zirconium, it’s time to head back to the periodic table, where there’s a new, extremely heavy element in town.
The new element doesn’t have an official name yet, so scientists are calling it ununpentium, based on the Latin and Greek words for its atomic number, 115.
Bob Lazar stated that the “Sports Model” Flying Disc amplified the “Strong Nuclear Force” of Element 115 (UnUnPentium or UUP) to generate the gravity field for “Space-Time Compression.”
Bob also stated that the U.S. Government had 500 pounds of Element 115 in their possession.
The raw Element 115 was given to the U.S. Government at S4 by the Reticulan EBEs in the form of discs.
The scientists at S4 sent the Element 115 discs through Groom Lake to Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico, to be milled for use in the Anti-Matter Reactor.
The Los Alamos personnel were told it was a new form of armour.
They simply followed orders, milled it in accordance with the following steps, and sent it back to Groom Lake.
It was during this process that some of the Element 115 turned up missing. As you’ll see below, the machining process to form the Element 115 wedge produces a tremendous amount of waste.
UUP – Element 115
Bob Lazar stated that the Element 115 used as the fuel and gravity source in the “Sports Model” Flying Disc was stable.
On February 2, 2004, scientists at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, in collaboration with researchers from the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research in Russia (JINR), announced that they discovered two new super-heavy elements, Element 113 and Element 115.
The Isotope of Element 115, produced by bombarding an Americium-243 (95Am243) nucleus with a Calcium-48 (20Ca48) nucleus, rapidly decayed to Element 113. then continued to decay until a meta-stable isotope was obtained.
In 2003, his statements gained more credibility when a group of Russian scientists managed to create the elusive element, and now, twelve years after that achievement, the discovery of ‘Element 115’ was finally confirmed after numerous tests which verified its existence.
However, the scientific version of ‘Element 115’ drastically differs from what Lazar has described over the years since according to reports, the element decays in less than a second and cannot be utilized for anything.
Ununpentium, the temporary name for Element 115, is an extremely radioactive element; its most stable known isotope, ununpentium-289, has a half-life of only 220 milliseconds.
In 2014, Lazar was interviewed by Geroge Knapp where they discussed ‘Element 115’ or Ununpentium where Lazar dismissed early findings surrounding Element 115, stating that he was confident that further testing will produce an isotope from the element which will match his initial description.
“They made just a few atoms. We’ll see what other isotopes they come up with. One of them, or more, will be stable and it will have the exact properties that I said,” Lazar told Knapp.
Moscovium was discovered in 2003 and officially announced on Feb. 2, 2004. It was created and announced by scientists at the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research in Dubna, Russia, and scientists at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in the United States
Moscovium has four isotopes with known half-lives, the most stable of which is 289Mc, with a half-life of about 220 milliseconds.
The atomic weight for manmade transuranium elements is based on the longest-lived isotope.
These atomic weights should be considered provisional since a new isotope with a longer half-life could be produced in the future.
Only a few atoms of moscovium have ever been made, and they are only used in scientific study. It is used to make nihonium.
