elemental tile of oganesson showing a Russian flag with Dr. Oganessian eyeglasses, hair and hand and radioactive symbolOganesson: The tile I created features the newly discovered element, oganesson. It is named after a Russian nuclear physicist, Yuri Oganessian, honouring him for his significant scientific achievements including that of discovering super-heavy elements. The background of the colours of the Russian flag represents Oganessian's nationality as well as the contribution of the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research in Dubna, Russia for the discovery of the element. The hair and glasses portray Oganessian’s most notable features, and the element’s name being written with chalk represents his occupation as a researcher.
