Re: Unbihexium: Doubly Magic Island of Stability


From wikipedia: Unbihexium is an unknown chemical element with atomic number 126 and symbol Ubh. It is of interest because it is in the hypothesized island of stability.

Unbihexium is also "doubly magic" which means that both the neutron number and the proton number equal one of the magic numbers: 2, 8, 20, 28, 50, 82, 126.

Thanks! The element was too cool not to deserve a shirt. Seriously, who hears "doubly magic" and thinks nuclear science? I wish I could have gotten it done sooner. And done it better.

I want this shirt so hard! I saw a special on the island of stability on the discovery channel a few years ago and when I saw this shirt I nearly cried. But I pulled myself together and remembered I'm a man.

Very cool concept and I like the design too. Wish it was getting more notice.

LOVES IT!! Definitely my fav of the derby. The horse at the top is great, and that dragon is hilarious. I'll be disappointed if this doesn't get printed. Good luck!!

Great to have your votes. Thanks for the comments! Oh, and I guess its sort of obscured because it is so small, but that's actually a unicorn on top. To "double" the magic.
