Element Collection

This page is currently under construction. Please excuse the large amount of missing content.

Currently, there are 118 elements which have been officially identified. Of those, 95 of them are actually possible and legal to collect in some form. I presently have enough samples to represent 56 of them either in pure form or in an interesting/unique compound, though that number is slowly growing.

To see my samples for a particular element, click on its symbol in the rudimentary periodic table below. Elements listed in red are impossible to collect for either legal or practical reasons. If an element symbol serves as a link (i.e. if it’s light blue), I have it. If it doesn’t have a link, I don’t have it… yet. Green elements are ones that I own but have yet to create a page for them.

Since the open house at Luke AFB back in March, not much of anything has happened on this site. However, by no means have I been sitting around and doing nothing all summer. As I write this post, I am ten hours away from flying home from St. Petersburg, Russia, where I have spent the last two months studying the Russian language and immersing myself in Russian culture. Though it had its difficult moments, it turned out to be a fantastic experience, and I am already trying to figure out a way to come back.

Russia’s achievements in spaceflight and aviation are what first got me interested in learning the language. Naturally, then, I was thrilled to get the chance to visit the country and hopefully see Russian airplanes and spaceflight relics in person. Unfortunately, though St. Petersburg is a great city, it has little to offer in those respects. There is a museum of cosmonautics on the grounds of the Peter and Paul Fortress, but it was undergoing renovation at the time of my visit and was not up to its usual standards. There is, however, one attraction in the city for those who love aviation. Specifically, this:
