History

History
The element Promethium was discovered by Chien Shiung Wu in year 1945 in United States. Promethium derived its name from from Prometheus of Greek mythology who stole fire from the Gods and gave it to humans
The element Praseodymium was discovered by Carl Auer von Welsbach in year 1885 in Austria. Praseodymium derived its name derived its name from from the Greek praseios didymos meaning 'green twin'
