elemental tile of tennessine created digitally showing cross-section of a reactor core with Tennessee flag symbol in middle

Tennessine: There were different institutions behind this super-heavy element discovery. In my tile, I tried to honour all of them along with recognizing the contribution of the Tennessee region. I used the logo of the University of Tennessee at Knoxville in the elemental symbol (T), the names of Oak Ridge National Laboratory and Vanderbilt University are shown, and in the background you can see a model cross section of High Flux Isotope Reactor Core. In the center of the core I added the Tennessee state flag symbol, glowing to acknowledge the radioactivity of the element.
