Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam visited the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory Friday to congratulate the ORNL team involved in the discovery of the element Tennessine, named in recognition of the vital
contributions of the state of Tennessee to the international search for new super-heavy elements. To mark the special occasion, UT-Batelle will provide more than 1,000 public middle schools and high schools in Tennessee with new charts of
the periodic table. Tennessine—the official name for Element 117—completes the seventh row of the table and the column of elements classified as halogens. The charts will include the signatures of Haslam and ORNL Director Thom
Mason.
