"Technetium is a chemical element with symbol Tc and atomic number 43. It is the lightest element whose isotopes are all radioactive; none are stable, excluding the fully ionized state of 97Tc. Nearly all technetium is produced synthetically, and only about 18000 tons can be found at any given time in the Earth's crust. Naturally occurring technetium is a spontaneous fission product in uranium ore and thorium ore, the most common source, or the product of neutron capture in molybdenum ores. The chemical properties of this silvery gray, crystalline transition metal are intermediate between rhenium and manganese, which it lies between in group 7 of the periodic table." -- wikipedia
Beaches was first introduced to the computer as a small child. He then started programming his TI-83+ in high school, and then it spiraled out of control from there. He has always had a knack for collecting things, especially information. This site is a work in progress, but please feel free to check out what is here already.
