Hey everyone my name is Violet I’m a 21 year old trans girl on the autism spectrum and I want to come on here and introduce myself and say hi. I’m visually impaired and some of my interests are watching Netflix science as well as physics and chemistry. I also love fashion and clothes. I hope everyone is having a good day or night. ’s

The greatest gift you can give someone is the space to be his or herself, without the threat of you leaving.💖❤️

Good morning everyone I hope life is treating you all well :) There are things that we don't want to happen but have to accept, things we don't want to know but have to learn, and people we can't live without but have to let go. As always I have your daily science fact!!!! :)

Nitrogen (N) exists as a colourless, odourless gas in the earth’s atmosphere. Comprising 79% of the earth atmosphere it is very abundant. It has the atomic number 7 and belongs in Group 15. It is a non metal. Nitrogen is an abundant chemical element that exists in the atmosphere as a diatomic molecule where two atoms of Nitrogen share 3 pairs of electrons in a triple bond. Nitrogen makes up 78% of the atmosphere and is breathed in and exhaled by humans but is not taken into the human body. Despite this, Nitrogen is a vital component in construction of proteins, amino acids and DNA. It is especially important in plant development and exists in soil as the compound Ammonia. Nitrogen is widely used in the creation of Ammonia in the Haber process as a fertiliser and is used to make explosives such as TNT. Nitrogen was discovered in 1772 by the physician Daniel Rutherford but has been known as a compound in nitric acid and ammonia since the middle ages. It is a non metal gas at room temperature and Whilst inert when breathed in by humans Nitrogen poses several risks to divers through Nitrogen Narcosis and the Bends. Nitrogen bubbles created in human tissue expands when divers ascend to the surface making it dangerous to ascend to quickly or spend too much time underwater.

Don't sacrifice yourself for the wants of others, neither your body, your soul or your spirit.❤️

Good morning everyone I hope your all doing well :) ya girl is here with your daily science fact!!!! Never allow someone to be your priority while allowing yourself to be their option. You matter.

Neon (Ne) exists as a colourless, odourless gas and is chemically inert. It has the atomic number 10. Neon was discovered in 1898 by the scientists Sir William Ramsay and Morris Travers who had recently discovered another Group 18 element Krypton. Having previously discovered Helium and Krypton the pair were aware an element existed between them. By freezing a sample of liquid air and evaporating the Argon off and reducing the pressure they collected the first gas to come off. By conducting a spectrum analysis using a high voltage they discovered a bright red light on the spectrum they attributed to the element Neon. Neon whilst rare on earth is the fifth most abundant gas in the universe found in stars and planetary atmospheres. It is an inert gas having a full outer shell of 8 electrons and is highly unreactive. Neon is often used in making high voltage equipment and lasers. It has also found a use in refrigeration units due to its ability to absorb large amounts of heat, however due to its rarity it is much more expensive than Helium or Hydrogen. Its most common use is in the production of Neon signs, producing a reddish orange colour. It is located in Group 18, the Noble gases. It is a non metallic gas at room temperature.

Every life has dark days. But even when your light has dimmed, it's still there. Have faith that it will shine brightly once again.

Hey everyone I hope your all having a good day/night please remember You are doing great. You are stronger than you think. Don't give up. And as always here is your daily science fact!!!! :) Ruthenium (Ru) is a brittle silver-gray metal that has the atomic number 44. Ruthenium was one of the last platinum group of metals to be discovered in 1828. It was initially believed that chemists Jons Jacob Berzelius and Gottfried W. Osann examined residues left over from platinum ores, they identified as three different elements. It was not until 1844 when Karl Klaus in Russia repeated the results and proved that Ruthenium was one of the only new element samples discovered. Ruthenium metal is highly toxic and dangerous to humans as a carcingoen. It is used to harden platinum and palladium in the alloying process, it is also used in some catalytic processes. Ruthenium is found free in nature due to its relative un reactivity.

Good morning everyone I hope life is going well for you all :) this is ya girl with your daily science fact!!! Please always be kind to one another. Yttrium (Y) is a silvery metal that has the atomic number 39. Yttrium is classified as a rare earth element due to its rarity on earth. It is never found as a free element but usually found in a compound with the lanthanides. Yttrium was discovered in 1787 by Carl Axel Arrhenius in the town of Ytterby, Sweden. In the mineral sample that Arrhenius analysed the elemental Yttrium was isolated in 1828 by Friedrich Wöhler. The most important use of Yttrium is in the production of LEDs, phosphors and electrodes.

Beauty is not about the fairest skin. It's about the purest heart.

Good morning everyone I hope life is treating you all well. The rest of the world doesn't get to dictate how you feel about yourself. Only you can decide that. And as always ya girl is here with your daily science fact!!! :)
Rubidium (Rb) is a silver-white coloured metal that has the atomic number 37 It is an Alkali Metal and Rubidium unlike other Alkali metals will not float on water due to its high density. Rubidium was discovered in 1861 by German chemists Robert Bunsen and Gustav Kirchhoff using spectroscopy. They analysed the mineral lepidolite and witnessed a bright red emission line. Rubidium is named after the Latin ‘rubidus’ which means deep red. Rubidium has a number of uses, primarily in fireworks. Rubidium’s isotopes exhibit radioactive activity and Rb 87 is commonly sed in laser cooling and also in atomic clocks. It has a melting point of 39.9°c and a boiling point of 688°c.

Hello everyone I hope your having a good day/night. Please be kind to each other times are hard and we need to stick together and be here for each other. here is your daily science fact :) Scandium is a transition metal part of the d electron block of the periodic table and is categorised as a rare earth metal that is only found in ores and not naturally occurring in the earth’s crust. It is commonly present in deposits of Uranium and is difficult to extract. It was first discovered in 1879 by Lars Nilson who conducted a spectra of the unknown compound but it was not until 1937 that Fischer and co managed to isolate Scandium from ores. Industrially, the production of pure Scandium is difficult so it is very often produced as Scandium Oxide. Only three mines in the world are known to contain Scandium compounds. Scandium is used in the alloying of metals, commonly with aluminium due to its strength and lightweight.

Hey everyone I hope your week is going well so far. Here we have a heatwave for my city today for the next few days so thats not gonna be fun. Please always be kind to each other and make someone around you smile. Ya girl is back with your daily science fact!!! :) Hassium like many larger atoms has only been created in the laboratory and does not exist in nature. Hassium has a half life of approximately 16 seconds hence why very little is known about it. The first attempt to create Hassium was made at the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research in Dubna in 1978 but it was unsuccessful. It was not until 1984 that German team of scientists succeeded in synthesising Hassium. Hassium is named after the German state of Hesse. Experiments have been conducted to determine the properties of Hassium, acting as a heavier osmium. As so little of it has been created the melting and boiling point have not been analysed.

And suddenly, when you least expect it, you'll realize that you don't need anyone to make you happy, because you know how to make yourself happy.✨✨✨💖🦋💕

Good morning everyone I hope life is treating you all well. Please remember to be kind and make yourself smile. I’m back with your daily science fact!!! :) Cadmium (Cd) is a blue-white metal that has the atomic number 48 in the periodic table. It is a Transition metal and located in Group 12 of the periodic table. Cadmium occurs in small quantities in zin ores and is obtained as a by product from mining copper and zinc. Cadmium was discovered by Friedrich Stromeyer in 1817 through his work on Zinc oxide. Heating Zinc carbonate produced a yellow/orange substance when zinc oxide should be white. He extracted the unknown metal from the metal oxide and isolated Cadmium metal. It is named after the Latin ‘Cadmia’ the old name for the zinc ore it is found in. Cadmium is used in the production of batteries, especially rechargeable nickel-cadmium batteries. It is also used in alloy production where it can be used to lower the melting point of other metals.

No matter what you're going through, you are not alone. The light is always with you. You might not see it, but you can trust it.❤️❤️❤️✨✨✨🦋

I have been having a really rough week thats why I haven’t been online much or at all. I relapsed with my sh and I’m not doing well.

Hey everyone I hope life is going well :) Value the people who are happy for your happiness. They're the ones who'll help you reach your goals. You all matter and each and every one of you is awesome!!!! :) As always I got your daily science fact!!! :) Manganese is a silvery-gray metal that resembles iron. It is hard and very brittle, difficult to fuse, but easy to oxidize. Manganese(IV) oxide was used in the original type of dry cell battery. as an electron acceptor from zinc, and is the blackish material in carbon–zinc type flashlight cells. The manganese dioxide is reduced to the manganese oxide-hydroxide MnO(OH) during discharging, preventing the formation of hydrogen at the anode of the battery.

7 years ago, SpaceX CRS-5 was launched to the ISS, where it delivered the Cloud Aerosol Transport System (CATS), an instrument that used laser pulses (lidar) to analyze Earth's atmospheric particles and clouds.

Good morning everyone I hope your day/night is going good. The weekend is almost here so please recharge and make time for yourself and your loved ones :) as always here is your daily science fact!!! :) Most zinc is used to galvanise other metals, such as iron, to prevent rusting. Galvanised steel is used for car bodies, street lamp posts, safety barriers and suspension bridges. Zinc oxide is widely used in the manufacture of very many products such as paints, rubber, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, plastics, inks, soaps, batteries, textiles and electrical equipment. Zinc sulfide is used in making luminous paints, fluorescent lights and x-ray screens.

Good morning everyone I hope your all doing well please remember to take time to make yourself smile and take some time this week to appreciate yourself and others. I have another amazing daily science fact today!!! :) The biggest use of selenium is as an additive to glass. Some selenium compounds decolourise glass, while others give a deep red colour. Selenium can also be used to reduce the transmission of sunlight in architectural glass, giving it a bronze tint. Selenium is used to make pigments for ceramics, paint and plastics. Selenium has both a photovoltaic action (converts light to electricity) and a photoconductive action (electrical resistance decreases with increased illumination). It is therefore useful in photocells, solar cells and photocopiers. It can also convert AC electricity to DC electricity, so is extensively used in rectifiers.

Hey everyone I hope your day or night is going well :) remember to smile and make someone around you smile or give them a hug :) here is your Daly science fact for today!!! :) Removing or preventing a buildup of static charge can be as simple as opening a window or using a humidifier to increase the moisture content of the air, making the atmosphere more conductive.
