HISTORYCalifornium, the sixth transuranium element to be discovered, was produced by Thompson, Street, Ghioirso, and Seaborg in 1950 by bombarding microgram quantities of 242Cm with 35 MeV helium ions in the Berkeley 60-inch cyclotron.Californium (III) is the only ion stable in aqueous solutions, all attempts to reduce or oxidize californium (III) having failed.Read more: http://www.lenntech.com/periodic/elements/cf.htm#ixzz3obKxP0T2

CHEMICAL PROPERTIESCalifornium is a radioactive metal which is a member of the actinide group of the periodic table. A sample of the metal itself has not been produced yet because its compounds resist reduction. It is expected to be readily attacked by air, steam and acids and not by alkalis.Read more: http://www.lenntech.com/periodic/elements/cf.htm#ixzz3obGck8Lu

Personal Background My superhero is called CaliforniaRadiocativeMan, he is a cool surfer dude from the state of California. He never gets old and forever is 23 years old!
