Transcript of Seaborgium
Seaborgium is a synthetic element not found in nature or present in the environment at all. Elements such as seaborgium can be created artificially in particle accelerators, the first report of the element came in 1974 from the Soviet Joint Institute for Nuclear Research and were followed later by others from Berkeley in California, USA.

Presumably a solid

and silvery white or grey in appearance.
Physical and Chemical Properties
There is no data on the melting and boiling points of Seaborgium. The density of the solid though is 23200 (predicted) 1kilogram/cubic meter.
a transuranium element, meaning it is unstable and decays radioactively into other elements. All elements greater than 92 (uranium) own these properties.
There are no current uses for seaborgium. The only relationship between the element and humans, if even, is simply filling in the space of 106 on the periodic table. Only very small amounts of it have ever been made, and isolation of an observable quantity of seaborgium has never been achieved.
Element 106 is named after Glenn T. Seaborg, who discovered many of the transuranium elements. Because of his many achievements, he was awarded a Nobel Prize in Chemistry.
