People worldwide use the standardized names of the elements on the periodic table, so it would be make sense that nations worldwide would contribute to naming new elements. This also helps to foster collaboration among the nations of the world. This in turn will help lead to new scientific discoveries that can greatly impact the whole world.
Yes, it is good to see nations like Japan help standardize worldwide scientific terms because these nations are incredibly advanced and we should value their ability to contribute to science. Japan does better than the United States in science and math, and we should not dismiss them simply because they are a foreign country.
I agree with this. It is actually good to see nations like Japan help standardize worldwide scientific terms. We don't have to limit this ability to only the super power country's. Japan has named element Nihonium and i strongly support this. It is a nice step and the other nations should emulate this.
There is already a standard chart for scientific materials. They are making things much more confusing than they already are. They need to conform to the standard elemental chart that everyone else already uses, rather than making things confusing by adding and naming elements that have already been named by the rest of the world.
