History

History
The element Americium was discovered by Glenn T. Seaborg in year 1944 in United States. Americium derived its name from from The Americas, as the element was first synthesized on the continent, by analogy with europium
The element Mercury was discovered by unknown in year 1500 BC in unknown place. Mercury derived its name derived its name from from the New Latin name mercurius, named after the Roman god (Hg from former name hydrargyrum, from Greek hydr-, 'water', and argyros, 'silver')
