Have you noticed? The writers seemed to be utterly obsessed with radium all through the golden age... Including in the 'Quick quiz' sections'... I know this was the beginning of the atomic age, but it crops up every other issue...

I think you should do a radium entry!

It would be cool to see a ref for everytime it was used in a  story.

It might be a long entry Wink

But Long Entries are the best Cheesy

Suns, Stars, and moons are also included in the planets category, not because they are consider planets but because they are related.

When is a planet not a planet?

When it's a dwarf planet.

According to the new definition, a "dwarf planet" is categorically NOT a planet.  Which makes no sense to me.  If something isn't a planet, it shouldn't be called a (whatever)-planet, it should be called a mega-asteroid, or some other term that doesn't actually include the word "planet."

Based on the new terms used, "dwarf planets" should be considered a sub-set of planets, not a completely separate set.  Which would mean that there are now 11 planets in the Solar System; 3 of which are dwarf planets.

Well, up to a while ago there were still 9 official planets... which were the standard in 1986, so I guess we should not fret about the 'new' definitions...


About elements, there are a lot of them that are not named... for example, one of the first amnesia stories (there sure are a lot, should there be an entry?), superman hits an asteroid and loses his memory... which was later rewritten and now superman gets near the red-gold kryptonite... and loses his memory. But was the original red-gold kryptonite? It wasn't established...  And there some great exotic unnamed materials, and rays...
