i'm a student of 11th grade. i studied about working of particle accelerators, cyclotrons in particular in a chapter of electromagnetism. i also read that the whole periodic table after element number 92, uranium, is fraud. because all the elements after 92 are really short lived and also can be created out of elements falling before 92. i am unable to connect the dots.. and relate these two facts. can we really bombard two elements or maybe and element with an alpha particle to create new element? or something like that?
im sorry for any misconception.. arguments and corrections will be appreciated.
