Schwerstes chemisches Element entdeckt

Das Darwin-Jahr ist sicherlich auch geeignet, um auf wichtige, noch nicht im öffentlichen Bewusstsein verankerte naturwissenschaftliche Entdeckungen hinzuweisen. Sozusagen aus (generell) aktuellem Anlass präsentieren wir im Nachfolgenden den Originalbericht zur Entdeckung des schwersten chemischen Elements:

New chemical Element Discovered The heaviest element known to science was recently discovered by investigators at a major U.S. research university. The element, tentatively named administratium, has no protons or electrons and thus has an atomic number of 0. However, it does have one neutron, 125 assistant neutrons, 75 vice neutrons and 111 assistant vice neutrons, which gives it an atomic mass of 312. These 312 particles are held together by a force that involves the continuous exchange of meson-like particles called morons. Since it has no electrons, administratium is inert. However, it can be detected chemically as it impedes every reaction it comes in contact with. According to the discoverers, a minute amount of administratium causes one reaction to take over four days to complete when it would have normally occurred in less than a second. Administratium has a normal half-life of approximately three years, at which time it does not decay, but instead undergoes a reorganization in which assistant neutrons, vice neutrons and assistant vice neutrons exchange places. Some studies have shown that the atomic mass actually increases after each reorganization. Research at other laboratories indicates that administratium occurs naturally in the atmosphere. It tends to concentrate at certain points such as government agencies, large corporations, and universities. It can usually be found in the newest, best appointed, and best maintained buildings. Scientists point out that administratium is known to be toxic at any level of concentration and can easily destroy any productive reaction where it is allowed to accumulate. Attempts are being made to determine how administratium can be controlled to prevent irreversible damage, but results to date are not promising."

This report was written in April 1988 and appeared in the January 1989 issue of The Physics Teacher. William DeBuvitz is a physics professor at Middlesex County College in Edison, New Jersey (USA). He retired in June of 2000.

Inzwischen ist die Forschung noch weitergegangen:

Finally released: The Source of Administratium

Scientists have released the secret of the source of Administratium; Administratium is refined from a repulsive amorphous material similar to a thick petroleum tar but much more viscous and sticky. This substance is known as Bureaucratite. Bureaucratite should be avidly avoided as it almost completely freezes progress. Anything unfortunate enough to venture into a deposit of Bureaucratite is instantly trapped and becomes entirely coated with the bituminous mess, although it may take weeks or months to sink out of sight into a deposit. Many creatures, long extinct, have been discovered within such quagmires but better preserved than those found in ice or tar pits.

Extraction from a deposit, should one be so lucky, is always excrutiatingly long and painful and rarely completely successful. Many unfortunates are haunted by innocuous bits of the stuff which always turn up in the most unexpected places and inconvenient times. People unlucky enough to have been exposed to bureaucratite have exhibited dangerously raised blood pressures, heart rates and bodily temperatures along with extremes of emotion.

Diese Beispiele für gut begründete, auf Fakten und Empirie basierende Forschung sind doch als vorbildlich anzusehen! Und da Erkenntnis ja der erste Schritt zur Besserung ist, wollte ich Ihnen diese Ergebnisse nicht vorenthalten. Besonders faszinierend ist auch die geschilderte Interdisziplinarität (Chemie, Atomphysik, Mineralogie, Geologie) sowie die daraus abgeleitetete medizinische und allgemein-gesellschaftliche Relevanz. Ob Darwin diese Entwicklungsfacette der Wissenschaft auch schon vorhersah?

Nix für ungut, mit Grüßen aus dem Alltag
