Background/overview

One of the ways of limiting data discussed in the lesson is to specify a date range, or age in weeks or months, for when the document was published or last updated. This can be important when searching for information in a field that is volatile or one in which new developments are announced frequently. Examples might be in certain scientific or medical specialties or in searching for information or opinions on a company's recent acquisitions. Even some track and field events, such as jumping or pole vaulting, can set new records on a regular basis.

Instructions

In high school or college Chemistry class, you probably studied the periodic table of elements. No doubt, higher-numbered elements have been discovered or created since then.
Using Bing, search for a recent site or document displaying the periodic table and find out what the highest-numbered element is now and its number.
See if you have as good a result or better using Google, which has no date setting.
You should check several of your results to make sure that no element has a higher number.
When you are finished, click the Submit button to view the suggested results.
