Astatine is not a natural occurring element. Emilio Segre and other scientist made for the first time Astatine "At' in a lab at the University of California in 1939-1940(Royal Society:Astatine). The scientist accidentally made Astatine by "bombarding bismuth with alpha particles"(Royal Society:Astatine). Even though no scientist will possibly ever create a visible sample of Astatine it's still used as a "quick-acting radioisotope in medicine"(pg.333). "At" works in the body because it is in the same group as the element Iodine "I" and in the body Astatine acts like Iodine. Astatine is one of the most rarest element of all and can hardly ever be used because it is so unstable.

Classified: Alkali Metal
Francium is found in Uranium "U" materials and can also be artificially mad by adding protons to the Thorium. Mostly you will find this element in the Earth crust but "Fr" is almost as rare as "At" so you won't see it for long. Francium got its name by being Marguerite Perey's home country(1996-2015). Since Francium is so rare and very fragile and therefore it is basically useless(pg.332).
Atomic Mass: 252
Electron Configuration: 1s^2,2s^2,2p^6,3s^2,3p^6,4s^2,3d^10,4p^6,5s^2,4d^10,5p^6,6s^2,4f^14,5d^10,6p^6,7s^2,5f^10
Classified: Transition Metal
Einsteinium was named after the scientist Albert Einstein. "Es" was discovered by a group of scientist in 1952. They found this element when studying the fist Hydrogen bomb. Since the "Es" has not been made that much it has no real use in the world unless for scientific research(Gagnon).
Atomic Mass: 227.03
Electron Configuration: 1s^2,2s^2,2p^6,3s^2,3p^6,4s^2,3d^10,4p^6,5s^2,4d^10,5p^6,6s^2,4f^14,5d^10,6p^6,7s^2,5f^1
Classified: Transition Metal
Actinium was discovered in 1899 by Andrew Debierne in Paris. "Ac" came from apart of Uranium oxide and in 1902 a man named Friedrich Otto Giesel found the exact same thing and didn't know it already existed and named it "meaning"(Royal society: Actinium). "Ac" does not have any uses outside the scientific lab and it is a source of alphas rays but that the only thing that "Ac" could do(Royal society: Actinium).
Atomic Mass: 114.82
Electron configuration: 1s^2,2s^2,2p^6,3s^2,3p^6, 4s^2,3d^10,4p^6,5s^2,4d^10,5p^1
Classified: Other Metal
Indium was discovered in 1863 by Ferdinard Reich and Hieronymous Richter in Germany. "In" was discovered when Ferdinard Reich was studying a different mineral zinc blend which contained a new element called Thallium. But since Reich was colored blind he had to ask Richter for help and Richter saw a violet line, and that how "In" got its name because in Latin Indium mean violet. Today "In" is company used in ouch screens, Flat Screens, and solar panels because Indium is used to make Indium Tin Oxide and that what make the touch screens, flat screens, and solar panel(Royal Society: Indium).
