Elements in Unicode: was odd question about elements 119+
First off, it's been about 6 years since I last took any chemistry. Second, I don't know if this question makes any sense, but I need the information for a project so here goes:
1. Is there any expectation that elements above atomic number 118 are even physically possible within our universe?
2. If so, do we have an expectation of a set of 18 groups corresponding to a new orbital geometry not present in lighter elements, or do we expect only 32 elements in period 8? This is just based on my observation of a patern of a set of 2 groups in period 1; sets of 2 and 6 in periods 2 and 3; 2,6,10 in 4 and 5; 2,6,10,14 in 6&7; therefore 2,6,10,14, & 18 in periods 8&9.
