VOTE for your favourite scientist to win a £500 prize to spend on communicating more science.
Named after the famous physicist Albert Einstein (surprise, surprise), Einsteinium is a solid element discovered in 1952. It is a man-made element, with only a few milligrams of it being created each year. It has a very short half life (meaning it disintegrates quickly) which is why it doesn’t have any uses apart from basic scientific research.
The Einsteinium Zone is a general physics zone, where you will meet six people working in a variety of areas related to physics.
