History

History
The element Technetium was discovered by Emilio Segrè in year 1937 in Italy. Technetium derived its name from from the Greek tekhnètos meaning 'artificial'
The element Niobium was discovered by Charles Hatchett in year 1801 in United Kingdom. Niobium derived its name derived its name from from Niobe, daughter of king Tantalus from Greek mythology
