    Flerovium and Livermorium are added to the periodic table. They are named in honor of the facilities that were instrumental in their going from theoretical to actual.

    What used to be element 114 is now flerovium, honoring the Flerov Laboratory of Nuclear Reactions in Dubna, Russia, where it was created.

    Element 116 is now livermorium, for the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in Livermore, California, home of a scientific team that participated in its creation in Dubna.
