Date of Birth (Fermium)

It was discovered in the debris of the first hydrogen bomb explosion in 1952, and named after Enrico Fermi

Physical Description

* symbol - Fm

* It is the heaviest element that can be formed by neutron bombardment of lighter elements, and pure fermium metal has not yet been prepared
* Melting point - 2781 F, 1527 C, and 1800 K
* boiling point - unknown

* atomic number - 100

* atomic mass - (257)

Family members of Fermium

* Uranium
* Neptunium
* Plutonium
* americium
* Curium
* Berkelium

* Californium
* Einsteinium
* Mendelevium
* Nobelium
* Lawrencium

Last seen (common uses)

* Fermium is of scientific research interest only

alias

* Named after Enrico Fermi

likely whereabouts

Since it's radioactive I'm assuming it can't bond with other elements, and I couldn't find anything

Other information

* Fermium is harmful due to its radioactivity
* It's a synthetic, high radioactive metal and has only been produced in minuscule amount

Reward

* There isn't really a price just because it's only made in a lab, and is highly radioactive
