Panguite
« on: June 28, 2012, 07:14:55 AM »
Here is a very interesting article from the Christian Science Monitor that should not go unnoticed.  There is a new element named after Pangu that was found on a meteroite that crashed into the desert in Mexico in 1969.

Please enjoy the article.  Why was it named Panguite? From the article:

Panguite is believed to be among the oldest minerals in the solar system, which is about 4.5 billion years old. Panguite belongs to a class of refractory minerals that could have formed only under the extreme temperatures and conditions present in the infant solar system.

The researcher, Chi Ma, wrote: Until now, panguite had neither been seen in nature nor created in a lab. "It's brand-new to science," Ma told LiveScience in an interview.

It is indeed a very interesting article.   ;)  Thank you for sharing!  I like the name Panguite.   
As we pay closer attention to things around us like you did, we will see more meaningful connections to Pangu.

I was curious if anyone else had noticed that the number of atomic elements is now up to 118? Many have been created in labs and don't occur naturally, but it's interesting because "The Path of Life" says there will only be 115, although the English translation doesn't clarify whether synthetic or natural.
