einsteinium (Es)

[īnstī′nē·əm]
Etymology: Albert Einstein, German-born physicist and Nobel laureate, 1879-1955
a synthetic transuranic metallic element. Its atomic number is 99. The mass of its longest-lived, best-known isotope is 254. Einsteinium was first found in the debris from a hydrogen bomb explosion. It decays rapidly into berkelium.
