History of Bohrium
Bohrium was discovered in 1975 by scientists who worked at the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research in Russia. It was confirmed in 1981 by scientists at the Heavy Ion Research Laboratory in Germany. Bohrium was first produced in Dubna, Russia. A team of Soviet scientists were the people to create bohrium in Russia. Peter Armbruster and Gottfried Münzenber were the people who confirmed this discovery in Germany. Bohrium was named after a famous danish scientist, Niels Bohr. Bohrium was created when scientists bombarded chromium into bismuth.
