In Moscow, was given the names of two new elements of the periodic table

In this Wednesday, October 24th, in Moscow assigned names two new elements of the periodic table - 114 and 116.
Note that this is - superheavy elements that are not found in nature: scientists synthesize them, which "fired" by calcium ions on the nuclei of the isotope plutonium or curium isotope nuclei.

One of the elements (114th) was named Flerov (Fl, named in honor of the Laboratory of Nuclear Reactions. Flerova) and the second (116th) - Livermore (Lv, named in honor of Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory).

Both elements are superheavy analogs of inert gases, but now scientists can not identify their exact chemical properties: a lump sum elements may exist only a fraction of a second.
