History

History
The element Tantalum was discovered by Anders Gustaf Ekeberg in year 1802 in Sweden. Tantalum derived its name from from King Tantalus, father of Niobe from Greek mythology
The element Vanadium was discovered by Andrés Manuel del Río in year 1801 in Mexico and Sweden. Vanadium derived its name derived its name from from Vanadis, an Old Norse name for the Scandinavian goddess Freyja
