Submission + - Two Elements Added To Periodic Table (

smitty777 writes: Two new elements have been added to the periodic table of the elements. Elements 114 and 116 are the weightiest known, with atomic weights of 289 and 292 respectively. The discoverers are proposing flerovium and moscovium as names for these two new discoveries.

There are also arguments being made to add in three more as well; 113, 115 and 118.
