Scientists at Dubna tried to synthesize element 116 by bombarding krypton-86 with ions of lead-208, and Victor Ninov fabricated the data to show they had created oganessan-293 which decayed into livermorium-289 . . . Trying again in 2000, they bombarded curium-248 target with ions of calcium-48, and thought they had produced livermorium-296, which decayed to livermorium-292, thence to flerovium-288. However, in 2002 they announced that they their livermorium-296 actually decayed to livermorium-293, thence to flerovium-289.
Atomic number 116
Livermorium is thought to behave like a heavier version of polonium, since livermorium is below polonium in the periodic table. Its behavior is thought be be influenced by relativistic effects, since its electrons must move closer to the speed of light.
Relativistic effects are the differences between actual behaviors and behavioral models that don’t account for the theory of relativity, which gives no help whatsoever in understanding why some people prefer bright lights and some prefer dim.
