They just discovered/made the seventh element in that column. It doesn't have a name yet, and I don't know enough to know if it too will be considered a noble gas.

evidently they are not including it officially since it has not been chemically proven to be inert and there is some debate as to whether it is

The recently named element 118 Oganesson [Og] by the IUPAC should be added to the list in order to complete the current noble gas group. Many thanks! Cheers

Well it's definitely approved now, so it should be updated to include Oganesson.

"Oganesson (Og) is variously predicted to be a noble gas as well or to break the trend due to relativistic effects; its chemistry has not yet been investigated. "

I just quote Wikipedia :

For example, although oganesson is a member of group 18 – the first synthetic element to be so – it may be significantly reactive, unlike all the other elements of that group (the noble gases).

Og, but we have enough for a tiresone Og quiz.

I would have figured radon would be better-known than xenon and krypton, since it gets in the news as a residential basement pollutant sometimes.

Got my own quiz, also called Noble Gases. It has the last element, the one that is not on this quiz. You should update this one, or at least do to it what I did I to mine. Otherwise, this is a great quiz

It is very narrow-minded to assume that oganesson will turn out to be a noble gas - there's more to it than following a trend. I was at school with a boy called Luke. His elder brothers were Matthew and Mark. His younger brother? Timothy.
