Administratium - A New Element
Thomas G. Kyle
Los Alamos, New Mexico
The heaviest element known to science was recently discovered
at one of the national laboratories. The element,
tentatively named administratium (Ad), has no electrons or
protons, thus having atomic number zero. It does, however,
have one neutron, 75 associate neutrons, 125 deputy associate
neutrons, and 111 assistant deputy associate neutrons. This
gives it an atomic mass of 312. The 312 particles are held
together in the nucleus by a force that invokes the
continuous exchange of mesonlike particles called memoons.
Since it has no electrons, administratium is inert.
Nevertheless, it can be detected chemically because it seems
to impede every reaction in which it takes part. According
to Dr. M. Languor, one of the discoverers of the element, a
very small amount of administratium caused one reaction that
normally occurs in less than a second to require over four
days to go to completion.
Administratium has a half-life of approximately 3 years, at
which time it does not actually decay. Instead, it undergoes
an internal reorganization in which associates to the
neutron, deputy associates to the neutron, and the assistant
deputy associates to the neutron all exchange places. A
tendency has been observed for the atomic mass to actually
increase during each reorganization.
