Darmstadt in Hesse, Germany is home to the The GSI Helmholtz Centre for Heavy Ion Research. Several schemical elements were discovered here including bohrium, meitnerium, hassium, roentgenium, and copernicium. These are all rare and highly radioactive elements. In 1994 the Centre discovered element 110 which has a half life of just 12.7 seconds. Possibly running low on famous scientists to name their discoveries after, the element was named after their hometown: Darmstadtium. Guided tours are available for groups of 10-40 people.
