Californium is a radioactive rare earth metal named after the state of California and the University of California. Californium is a strong neutron emitter - making it a biological hazard, most unlike its namesake.

The Elements of My Design:
From periodic.lanl.gov/elements/98.html -
"It has been suggested that californium may be produced in certain stellar explosions, called supernovae, for the radioactive decay of 254Cf (55-day half-life) agrees with the characteristics of the light curves of such explosions observed through telescopes. "

Even more impressed if you only spent 15 minutes - I like the loose line quality - he looks like spilled mercury - imagine what you could do if you wasted as much time as some of us!

This is incredibly geeky and awesome. I'm disappointed to not see it placing higher.
