The Mines campus is one of the few settings where nerds can talk about their favorite elements. Some are practical, such as nitrogen, oxygen, and carbon while others are favorites of the explosive-loving students. Some elements are favorites purely because of their name, such as Krypton. This week, Minds at Mines went around campus asking, “What is your favorite element and why?”
|Helium because it is number 1.
|Cesium because it makes a huge explosion.
|Tungsten. It’s unique. It’s like W for no reason.
|I like Neon because it reminds me of the lights and they are pretty.
