      Hi @fragglerock and @ruthenium
      Good question!
      I like magnesium, because it burns so brightly!

      Do you have a fave?

      Hi @fragglerock and @ruthenium

      Mine would have to Caesium (Cs) because it goes bang when mixed with water!

      It is also used to define exactly how long a second is, which is pretty cool.

      A chemistry friend of mine introduced me to the ‘Periodic Table of Videos’ some time ago – here is the video for Cs

      Do you have a favourite element?
