IAmA science journalist who has spent the past year visiting every lab that has discovered a chemical element since 1945. I've traveled 60,000 miles and I still goof about around particle accelerators. AMA.
I've done an AMA before, but right now I'm stuck on a pesky chapter, so what better way to answer all of your questions about science, journalism, element discovery, the weird bit at the end of the periodic table, or how Colonel Sanders helped build the first atomic bombs.
