It is possible that the scientists managed to Volgograd brilliant scientific discovery, opening a new element of the periodic table, the hardness is higher than the hardness of the materials used in the aerospace industry. At the moment he does not have an official name, as well as a number of chemical elements. And the history of its discovery is quite mysterious.
It all started with an expedition to Mount Medveditskaia, during which the researcher Volgograd unexplored phenomena of nature and psyche Roman Valiulin and Volgian researcher of anomalous phenomena Gennady Belimov found under your feet quite remarkable pebble. In these places there are a lot of wonderful, so they decided to keep it as a souvenir.
According to the curator of the research group "Consciousness" Roman Valiulina, first struck the same on both sides of the through hole with molten edges. It is possible that it was left after hitting streak lightning, which in these parts is not uncommon. According to the researcher, it makes the model unique, since the shape of the holes in this case — it is the very form of lightning.
For the study sample had melted saw off a small piece. However, he resisted with difficulty or Bulgarian or hacksaw did not help. Still, a small portion of the finds be delivered to the laboratory of the Volga.
Geologists immediately said that this sandstone, the age of which about 90 million years.
But all doubt that it is indeed a unique specimen, disappeared after the sample is fused into the hands of the engineer laboratory metallographic methods forensic Valentine Battle.
According Valiulina after studying stone Valentina concluded that in part was the stones appear to contain an unknown element. As mentioned in an official document of the current study: "We do not have the substance analogues of known science».
However, the fighting was not able to eradicate the mysterious element that is fused structure and is a major component of unknown alloy. It has proved to be extremely high hardness, the average exceeded 80 units HRC.
According to the chemists of all known elements and substances hardest etched stainless steel, the hardness of which 75.8 units. It can corrode in aqua regia for eight seconds, heating to 50 degrees Celsius. A fused sample found on Bald Mountain, was in aqua regia, heated to 70 degrees, more than a minute. And all that came — a strange film part was near.
Stone ridge with Medveditskaia still keeps its secrets. According to scientists from Volgograd, this alloy is formed at temperatures above 2,000 degrees Celsius, and an unknown chemical element was the result uncertain until the reaction. But to clarify this issue will only further research.
At the moment in the periodic table contains 118 elements, and six more have opened, but have not received the title. Periodic system is constantly updated by scientists from laboratories in Japan, America and Russia "Skolkovo".
Only time will tell whether the Volgograd scientists to join them. Until about the "Volgograd element" only know that he is superior to hard materials used in the aerospace industry.
