 This theorem was first conjectured by Pierre de __________ in 1637 in the margin of a copy of

is among the most notable theorems in the history of mathematics and prior to its proof, it was in
the Guinness Book of World Records as the "most difficult mathematical problem", one of the

architectural excess.

giant oval made up of steel ribs and glass laid out in elliptical shape, reaching for the sky like
wings of a bird. The space measures 350 feet (107 meters) long by 115 feet (35 meters) at its
widest point, according to Calatrava's website.
 Initially budgeted at $2 billion, it has spiraled to $3.85 billion according to a spokesperson in

 It said that when completed, the transit hub will serve 250,000 people and more than 200,000
commuters each day, making it the third-largest transportation center in the city.

speck of an island outside of Stockholm. But no place on earth has been more
important to the periodic table. A few places—if you count Latin names—can brag
that two elements have been named for them. ________ has four. And it could have
had more, since three other elements can trace their discovery to a modest mine
that once supported the community there.
 There are a few reasons why so much scientific energy was concentrated in such a
small space as ___________. First is the type of elements discovered there. All seven
of __________ elements were rare-earth elements.

Scandinavia; and gadolinium, after Gadolin himself.
