The 3-D periodic table on display at the New York hall of Science
The New York Hall of Science unveiled a 3-D version of the periodic table of elements in honor of the International Year of the Periodic Table. Scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Brookhaven National Laboratory contributed three elements that are at the center of our historical and ongoing radioisotope research: actinium, arsenic, and technetium.
The display, built by the New York section of the American Chemical Society, runs through Sunday, October 27, and is free with admission to the New York Hall of Science.
