Meet the Periodic Table's Two Newest ElementsS

Two new man-made elements have been added to the periodic table after winning reality show Top Element. Elements 114 and 116, both originally formed in Moscow in 2004 and 2006, beat out would-be elements 113, 115 and audience favorite 118, all three of which were rejected by the international judges' panel after weeks of grueling, dramatic competition between the extremely unstable substances. The two newcomers will be the heaviest elements on the periodic table (their names refer to the number of protons in their nuclei) and have been awarded a record contract with Island/Def Jam. [WSJ]
