Being involved with in nuclear reactors and weapons
Provides a long-lasting energy source for space probes
Harmful due to its radioactivity and toxicity

The word Plutonium comes from the late 18th century word Ploutōn (pluto) being the planet beyond Neptune. Plutonium's symbol is Pu instead of Pl, because Pu would be easier to remember.
BOHR diagram of plutonium
As you can see plutonium has a whopping 150 neutrons and 94 protons
Plutonium's chemical symbol
uses for plutonium
Plutonium not only is used in atomic bombs, but in nuclear reactors and power plants
Plutonium is a silver-like, radioactive metal that oxidizes and changes to a yellow coating when it comes into contact with air.
KEEP AN EYE OUT!!! Plutonium in different stages varies from:
blue lavender (Pu3+), pink (PuO2+)in sodium perchlorate, yellow brown (Pu4+), olive green (PuO5 2+), and yellow (Pu2 2+)

PLUTONIUM IS CONSIDERED THE MOST DANGEROUS ELEMENT ON THE PERIODIC TABLE!!!
Do to it's high toxicity and radioactivity and that it comes from uranium, if you are exposed to this element it is almost a certain fatality.
