Caption: Glenn Theodore Seaborg (1912-1999), US chemist, in front of a chart showing isotopes of various elements. Seaborg discovered the transuranic element plutonium (Pu) in 1940, and the element Seaborgium (Sg) is named after him. Transuranic elements are those which occur beyond uranium in the periodic table. Seaborg also discovered Americium (Am) and seven other transuranics. In 1944, Seaborg formulated the actinide concept which predicted the properties of a series of 14 heavy elements, including the first 11 transuranics. For this work, he was awarded a share of the 1951 Nobel Prize in Chemistry. Photographed in 1946.
