Discovery Changes How Scientists Examine Rarest Elements of Periodic TableExternal link

A little-known element called californium is making big waves in how scientists look at the periodic table. According to new research by a Florida State University professor, californium is what’s known to be a transitional element, meaning it links one part of the Periodic Table of Elements to the next.
