Interactive Periodic Table of the Elements

The Elements Revealed: An Interactive Periodic Table - Scientific American 10/10/11

Neat little interactive chart on the elements... What's most astounding is now we know how these elements came to be, how they were formed in which quantities and how they are dispersed throughout the universe. We also see the correlation between the elements in the universe and the elements that comprise you and me. It's all the same stuff. The iron in our blood is the same iron in meteorites that fall to earth. The oxygen and hydrogen and carbon we're made of was forged in the nuclear furnaces of stars that went supernova. How awesome!
