In an amazing display of chaos theory http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chaos_theory come true, the heaviest of elements has been added to the periodic table nearly simultaenously with the discovery of the Earth's most lightweight element.
"is the heaviest element in the periodic table, 277 times heavier than hydrogen. It is produced by a nuclear fusion, bombarding zinc ions onto a lead target." http://www.telegraph.co.uk/scienceandtechnology/science/sciencenews/5846349/New-element-copernicium-added-to-Periodic-Table.html
It was first discovered by Sigurd Hofman at the Centre for Heavy Ion Research in Germany during the course of fusion experiments in 1996. The element will carry the symbol Cp, in honor of Copernicus, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nicolaus_Copernicus, the first astronomer to formulate a heliocentric cosmology.
Meanwhile, here in the U.S., the near simultaneous discovery of Obamium was reported by conservative pundits at The American Thinker as the result of Democrat party bombardment of the U.S. economy in an attempt at Socialist fusion. The particle is such a lightweight that it is 277 times lighter than helium and has a similar effect on the voices of those promoting the current Democrat economic vision, increasingly to the unavoidable derision of the American public. The new element"s symbol, Ob, honors Barack Hussien Obama, the first politician to formulate an Obamacentric cosmology. Scientists at the American Center for Light Alphabet Research are working with graphic artists to determine how to include that funny-looking Obama symbol http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=70236 into the English alphabet, replacing the O and providing the perfect display for the element now demonstrating the periodic table's Unbearable Lightness of Being http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Unbearable_Lightness_of_Being.
