it isn’t carbon,isn’t sodium nor also isn’t gold.The newly created superheavy element, announced today in a paper published in the journal Physical Review Letters and known so far simply as element 115 — for the number of protons in its nucleus — is a very real thing
So,the Element 115 now were officially welcomed to the chemical periodic table as Element 115 and officially labelled as ununpentium dictated by international chemistry naming rules, is neither a natural nor practical thing. Unlike the first 92 elements on the table, it was created artificially

But that was more than enough time for physicists at Lund University in Sweden to detect the scattering of smaller particles it left behind. Reverse engineering that debris, they could confirm that the new element had indeed been present
