    I’ve been to the Franklin Institute. At the time, the centerpiece was the giant fiberglass reproduction of a heart that you could actually walk through.

    I just got a call from the CHF– they’re on the case!

    I have the sneaking suspicion that some manager somewhere noticed the periodic tables with the *pictures* of the elements, and saw a cheap way out of maintaining the collections of the real ones.

    They all look the same, and have lost their originality

    If commercial artists put more originality into their effort, like the RSC did a few years back, young people’s interest could be piqued at a much earlier age.

    Great find! Someone should make a youtube video about every element on the periodic table. That might grab a lot of attention.

    Although Tom Lehrer’s “The Elements” has no pictures or real element samples, it will certainly entertain potential future chemists. Enjoy!

    If you are interested in the origins and significance of the periodic table you might consider picking up a copy of my book,

    The Periodic table, Its Story and Its Significance, published by Oxford University Press in 2007.

    I would be delighted to hear from any readers. See my website for my E-mail or do a search.
