What Makes Them So Noble?

Helium (He), Neon (Ne), Argon (Ar), Krypton (Kr), Xenon (Xe), and Radon (Rn) are the main 6 Noble Gases. These 6 elements are all elements that are naturally in a gaseous state. There is a 7th element in the same group called "Ununoctium" (Uuo) which used to be also considered a noble gas, but was redacted when chemists discovered that it may actually be a solid instead of a gas.
