Francium currently has no uses outside of basic scientific research due to the lack of production and its short-life.
As a radioactive element, however, it does pose a threat to human health.
Discovered by a French Chemist named Marguerite Catherine Perey
Discovered in 1939
Was discovered accidentally while analyzing actinium's decay seguence
Radioactive decay: the breakdown of an atomic nucleus resulting in the release of energy and matter from the nucleus
Scientists estimate that there is no more then one ounce of francium in the earths crust at one time.
Due to the fact that there is lack of this element in the earths crust, scientists have to produce francium to study it.
It is the most unstable of the first 103 elements in the periodic table.
Its longest lived isotope has a half life of 22 minutes.
Francium is the heaviest simple atom
Francium is the 2nd rarest element in the crust, after astatine.
