History

History
The element Helium was discovered by Pierre Janssen in year 1895 in Sweden and United Kingdom. Helium derived its name from from the Greek word helios, meaning 'sun'
The element Hafnium was discovered by Dirk Coster in year 1923 in Denmark. Hafnium derived its name derived its name from from Hafnia, the New Latin name for Copenhagen
