В 1950 году в США объявили об открытии 98-го элемента – калифорния

The most expensive, according to the Guinness Book of Records, chemical element was discovered by professor at the University of California Glenn Theodore Seaborg and his employees. The future Nobel Prize winner had synthesized Plutonium, discovered Americium, Curium and Berkelium. Choosing the name for the new element, the discoverers immortalized the university, state, and inconceivable complexity of its synthesis method. “The discovery of the element went as hard for the scientists as the way to California for American pioneers.”
