19 Amazing Science Discoveries In 2015

2. Four New Elements In The Periodic Table

In the latter half of 2015, scientists and researchers from both Russia and the United States teamed up and collected some solid evidence to the claim of the discovery of four new elements, namely 115, 117, and 118. Likewise, the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry have given credit to scientists in Wako, Japan, for the discovery of element 113. The names of the four new elements have yet to be determined. This also means, four more elements to memorize on the periodic table, for those who don’t like chemistry.
