# Fictional Elements.

## Recommended Posts

How many can you think of (and name with properties).

Anamantium (not spelled right) From X-Men A very shiny non mallibule non corrsive mettal that is virtually industrucitiable and once forged cannot be destroyed.

Naquada From SG-1 Non radioactive highley reactive super heavy element looks like grafite.

Naqaudria SG-1 same as naquada but more reactive and is more unstable.

Maclarium SG-1 does not exist in nature atomic weight over 200 most likley non radioactive.

How about that element from Spider-man 2? I forget the name, someone refresh my memory. It looked pretty damn cool though.

Edit: Was it 'Tritium'? Isn't Tritium H3?

it's the isotope of hydrogen known as H3, yes.

"Anamantium (not spelled right) From X-Men A very shiny non mallibule non corrsive mettal that is virtually industrucitiable and once forged cannot be destroyed.

probably a transition metal related to osmium, iridium, tungsten

Naquada From SG-1 Non radioactive highley reactive super heavy element looks like grafite.

Naqaudria SG-1 same as naquada but more reactive and is more unstable.

Maclarium SG-1 does not exist in nature atomic weight over 200 most likley non radioactive.

Oh yeah, What about the Bob Lazar guy who claimed Ununpentium could actually exist without decaying instantly.

Bob lazar is the owner of unitednuclear.com and does pyrotechnic shows in desert blast.

wats desert blast?

##### Share on other sites

Its a crazy event were hardcore people go in nevada (i think) and shoot of fireworks and walk around naked and theres bikers. I havent read this whole site, but it should get an overview. Its probaly an incredible event. http://www.desertblast.org/

BO0 (its just after Magnessium). apparently its the element of surprise

my teacher has named one from his name, the Besnerium!

How about Kryptonite (sp?) from Superman?

Is there really such an element?

Thats a fictional compound but not element.

Krypton.

some of these aren't elements, but fake compounds. like Kryptonite and Adamantium.

edit: Lance, grrr...

##### Share on other sites

I always thought of adamantium as an allow of several elements.

dilithium, latinum and the rest of the star trek ones. theres a list here - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fictional_elements

...if any of these 'exotic' transuranic elements exist, then they would have been spotted in stellar spectra - even very short 1/2 life ones like Al26 have been detected, so if thre were any >115 atomic no. elements, I wuold have guessed they would have been found, albeit fleetingly!

my 2 femtograms worth....

In order to get nuclei of that weight, you need to fuse very large atoms together. A star only produces atoms of any appreciable weight when it is collapsing into a supernova. So I am fairly confident that even in the far reaches of space, elements >115 don't exist.

H2S04, google 'Bob Lazar' and you'll know what I mean.

Dihydrogen monoxide

Dihydrogen monoxide? Isn't that another name for water?

##### Share on other sites

i guess water is fictional now

dueterium oxide is heavy water. i have no idea wat significance that has here

Yep, as a astrophysics student I concur. Even if they had short 1/2 lives, I suspect we'd detect the daughter nuclei?

##### Share on other sites

But even the daughter nuclei have relatively short half-lives in the grand scheme of things.

118 was seen, but then no one could see it again, so it may not have been seen at all.

it's like religion with fast-moving particles.

116 has been seen in the lab, though:

Yeah, the claim to have discovered element 118 has been retracted because the group that submitted the discovery realized that they misread their data. They were also unable to reproduce their results, so they have retracted all statements about the discovery.
