One of the first things we went into this week was isotopes. An isotope is an element with a special number of neutrons. The featured image shows three isotopes of hydrogen the only difference being the number of neutrons.

“Tritium is a highly radioactive isotope of hydrogen, with a specific activity of almost 10,000 curies per gram… Since tritium has the same chemical properties as hydrogen, it can combine with oxygen to form water.” ~ Arjun Makhijani, Ph.D. http://www.nuclearworld.net/
Hydrogen is a chemical element with chemical symbol H and atomic number 1. With an atomic weight of 7000100794000000000♠1.00794 u, hydrogen is the lightest element on the periodic table. Its monatomic form is the most abundant chemical substance in the Universe, constituting roughly 75% of all baryonic mass.[note 1] Non-remnant stars are mainly composed of hydrogen in the plasma state. The most common isotope of hydrogen, termed protium , has one proton and no neutrons.

Researchers from the Department of Physics at the Harvard University have found two new quantum states of a particular isotope of hydrogen, getting a step closer to proving the existence of metallic hydrogen.
