About Rutherfordium

Rutherfordium is one of the artificially created chemical elements, which is highly radioactive and dangerous to all the living things on our planet. It was obtained by two groups of scientists at the same time, with one being led by an American scientist in California and the other working in Moscow, the Soviet Union. The newly discovered element has got the name after Ernesto Rutherford who studied molecular and atomic structure. Rutherfordium is possible to be received only in terms of chemical labs or nuclear reactors, so it is produced in micro amounts and is used only for research.
