    The newest elements: nihonium (Nh), moscovium (Mc), tennessine (Ts) and oganesson (Og) take slots 113, 115, 117 and 118 on the periodic table.

    Phew! Although unlikely, at least I don't have to undo the homework my chemistry teacher gave 50 years ago which was to learn the order of the first 25 elements off by heart. It's still stuck in my memory even now! :)

    Well I'm not sure it will change 'real use' chemistry much, as far as I'm aware these new elements don't hang around for long on their own and there don't seem much likelihood of using them for much. Time will tell... :science:
