In the course of investigations on argon, some clue was sought for, which would lead to the selection of one out of the almost innumerable compounds with which chemists are acquainted, with which to attempt to induce argon to combine. A paper by W. F. Hillebrand, “On the Occurrence of Nitrogen in Uraninite, &c.” (‘Bull, of the U. S. Geological Survey,’ No. 78, p. 43), to which M r. Miers kindly directed my attention, gave the desired clue. In spite of Hillebrand’s positive proof that the gas he… Expand
Liquid Metallic Hydrogen II. A Critical Assessment of Current and Primordial Helium Levels in the Sun
Before a solar model becomes viable in astrophysics, one must consider how the elemental constitution of the Sun was ascertained, especially relative to its principle components: hydrogen and helium.Expand
Foundations of Discovery
Helium’s discovery is probably one of the most unique stories in elemental discovery. Its ultimate identification was the culmination of hundreds of years of scientific achievements by countlessExpand
Argon and the Periodic System: the Piece that Would not Fit
The discovery of the noble gases and their incorporation into the periodic system are examined in this paper. A chronology of experimental reports on argon and helium and the properties relevant toExpand
Liquid Metallic Hydrogen: Building Block of a Liquid Sun
Liquid metallic hydrogen provides a compelling material for constructing a condensed matter model of the Sun and the photosphere. Like diamond, metallic hydrogen might have the potential to be aExpand

The Cosmos in Your Pocket: How Cosmological Science Became Earth Technology. I
Astronomy provides a laboratory for extreme physics, a window into environments at extremes of distance, temperature and density that often can't be reproduced in Earth laboratories, or at least notExpand
The ends of elements.
When elements 117 and 118 are finally named, should these new members of the halogen and noble gas families receive names ending in -ium as IUPAC has suggested? Brett F. Thornton and Shawn C.Expand
