Ned’s Atomic Dustbin is a British band formed in 1987.  “The Neds” as their fans referred to them,  have a tense distorted guitar driven sound.  They disbanded in 1995 and united in 2008 with almost the entire original band.  Their song “Grey cell green” appeared in an earlier or future science homework (however you’d like to think about it.)  Here’s their song, “Kill Your Television.”

“Atoms for Peace” was the title of a speech delivered by President Dwight D. Eisenhower on December 8, 1953.  The speech was meant to focus on the peaceful ways to use atomic power.  “Atoms for Peace” is also a song by Thom Yorke, lead singer of Radiohead as well as the name of this new band (with Flea from the Red Hot Chili Peppers).

Here’s the speech by President Eisenhower as well as the song by Thom Yorke.

    • tifftai says:

      Which part of the question?
      I can probably help you during snack. Remember that if you can’t find the answers to all of the questions, it’s okay. Just try to include as much info as possible.

    i dont understand the question how was the symbol determined. ok and thanks

    • tifftai says:

      It’s not really relevant for your elements. Obviously O is the first letter of Oxygen. For Astatine, the symbol is At because As was already being used for Arsenic. For some elements like silver, Ag stands for “argentum” which in latin means “grey shining.” Anyway, you can just skip over it.
