This weekend, (in USA), NOVA, the PBS science show aired “The Pluto files” by Neil deGrasse Tyson with a lot of fan-fair and “ketch”. However, Plutonium was slighted! He traveled all over the country and even interviewed Mickey Mouse’s dog. But no mention of the element named for the PLANET Pluto. I was thinking of a petition stating something like:
“No one in the physical Sciences is going to follow suit with the IAU and change the name of Plutonium to Dwarfium.”
The units of resistivity don't come out right.
10^-8 Ohm * m
m Ohm * cm
the 'm' should be a 'mu', but unfortunately they both look the same in the latin alphabet.
