History

History
The element Uranium was discovered by Martin Heinrich Klaproth in year 1789 in Germany. Uranium derived its name from from Uranus, the seventh planet in the Solar System
The element Americium was discovered by Glenn T. Seaborg in year 1944 in United States. Americium derived its name derived its name from from The Americas, as the element was first synthesized on the continent, by analogy with europium
