Caption: Discoverers of Element 102, at the Lawrence Radiation Laboratory at the University of California, Berkeley, USA. From left to right, they are US research chemists Albert Ghiorso (1915-2010), Torbjorn Sikkeland and John R. Walton. The fourth member of the group was Glenn T. Seaborg. Sikkeland is holding the conveyer belt that was used to collect the atoms of Element 102 from the source in the heavy ion linear accelerator (HILAC). The target source assembly is seen on the table. This photograph was taken around the time the discovery was reported on 5 May 1958. Element 102 was later named nobelium.Restrictions:
