Mitch Garcia is the man!

Congratulations to Mitch Garcia of the Chemistry Blog, for helping discover a new element in the periodic table!

His group just published a paper in PRL confirming independently the existence of element 114.
Which is so incredibly badass.

I am basking in the glow of being Facebook friends with someone who has helped discover a real life element. Basking I tells you!

Let's hope Mitch can help them come up with a more creative name for the element than "Chemistry Blog."
