Great Moments in Nerdery: Blogging the Periodic Table of Elements

bloggingperiodictable

As you know, at The Nerdery we really dig the periodic table, just take a peek at our About Us page. So you can understand why we’re really pumped about Sam Kean’s Slate project Blogging the Periodic Table of Elements. He’s just started the project so you need only catch up on Antimony, Hydrogen, Selenium, Vanadium, Copernicium, Nitrogen & Phosphorus, and Lithium. And you should! It’s really fascinating trivia.

“Despite its obscurity, probably no element on the periodic table has as colorful a history as antimony. Money, madness, poison, linguistics, charlatanism, sex—pretty much every theme that runs through the periodic table can be found in Element 51.”
