First to spot neon:

Sir William Ramsay, a Scottish chemist, and Morris M. Travers, an English chemist were the first to spot neon. Sir Williams Ramsay was born on October 2, 1852 in Glasgow, United Kingdom and died on July 23, 1916 in High Wycombe, England. He also spotted argon and krypton. Morris M. Travers was born on January 24, 1872 in London, United Kingdom and died on August 25, 1961 in Stroud, United Kingdom. He also found krypton with Sir William Ramsay.

First to be arrested:

Neon was spotted in the United Kingdom in 1898 after the founding of krypton. It was found by the study of liquid-fication.

Last seen:

  • Hanging out with his family, the noble gases, on the periodic table
  • Also with with his squad, group 18
  • On an open sign
  • In the atomoshpere

Known associates ( Neon's close friends):

Does not form any mixtures/ compounds with others because it's an inert noble gas. It is full of electrons, so it doesn't need to get rid or gain electrons. Neon is already stable so that's why it doesn't need to mis with others to make it stable.


Neon is NOT radioactive and flammable. However, when it is leaking from a sign, it can cause headaches, dizziness, and suffocation.
