Island of Stability Flag Ship Cartoon

The island of stability was made popular by one of America's finest scientists, Glenn Seaborg, who got an element named after himself: Seaborgium, element 106. Glenn was also a crew member on the USS Scientific D. Rsc. team that discovered 10 new atoms on the periodic table. 

The cartoon above that shows the Ion Ships attempting to land on the "Island of Stability" are shown.  The mast flags give away the elements that are shown.  A Calcium-Ca Ion ship is closest to reaching the predicted island, likewise a Zinc-Zn ship is in second place.

The periodic table of atoms, or rather periodic table of elements, has reached a full definition and shape for every element has recieved an official name.
