    Lightbulb Periodic table of elements found in other planets of Solar System.



    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Periodic_table
    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Planet

    Is it possible to discover naturally occurring elements in other planets of Solar System?

    I mean Jupiter, Saturn, Mars, Mercury, Venus, Pluto, Uranus, Neptune.

    Thanks & Regards,
    Prashant S Akerkar

    Do you feel new Periodic Elements will
    not be discovered in Planets (Other than Planet Earth), Dwarf planets, Minor planets, Natural Satellites & Comets of Solar System?

    Thanks & Regards,

    I’m no expert, but I would speculate that whatever stable elements that existed in the solar system when it formed would have made it onto every planet. I think some amount of every element will be on every planet including Earth.

    We are able to detect elements and molecules on other planets, as well as on distant stars, through spectroscopy.

    The periodic table is complete up to element 118. By definition, atomic numbers are integers, and there are no missing elements from 1 to 118. So any new elements discovered would have atomic numbers 119 and up. They are more likely to be discovered in labs on Earth than on other planets.

    Uranium at atomic number 92, is the heaviest element found in nature. Although it is radioactive, U238 has a half life of 4.47 billion years allowing it to form minerals that are stable over geological time. Heavier elements are increasingly less stable with atomic numbers greater than 100 having half lives under a second in most cases.
    Hope this helps.
