From Nights, 8:10 pm on 30 August 2019

To mark 2019 as the year of the Periodic Table, RNZ Nights has teamed up with the MacDiarmid Institute to bring you Element of The Week. Tonight, Richard Hartshorn, Professor of Chemistry at University of Canterbury and Secretary General of the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry introduces us to the element Rutherfordium and the reason for tonight's sonic tonic dedicated to splitting.
