One of the actinides, einsteinium is a chemical element which was discovered in the middle of the 20th century by a group of American scientists in the University of California. As the name suggests, it comes after Albert Einstein. It is a very toxic and radioactive metal which can only be obtained in nuclear reactors from such material as uranium. Einsteinium is dangerous to all living organisms and is used only with the purpose of scientific research. It is produced only in the amounts of a few grams every year.
