The element Seaborgium was discovered in 1974 and is one of only two elements on the periodic table to be named after a living person at the time it was discovered. The element was named for the nuclear chemist Glenn T. Seaborg.

In this general science zone you’ll meet one scientist using lasers and nanotechnology to fight cancer, another using computers to search through billions of letters of DNA to find causes for diseases, and another researching the physics that goes on inside plants. Another scientist in this zone is researching which way the highest parts of the Earth’s atmosphere move in response to things happening in space, another is simulating the evolution of galaxies to see how stars form over billions of years, and another helps other scientists squash and prod mud pies with plants growing in them to see what happens.
