Glenn T. Seaborg (1912-1999) was an influential American chemist most renowned for discovering plutonium in 1940. He also helped produce and isolate several additional synthetic transuranium elements and defined the actinide series. Seaborg received the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1951, had an element named after him (Seaborgium), and chaired [...]
