NamingEdit

After acknowledging their discovery, the IUPAC asked the discovery team at GSI to suggest a permanent name for element 112. On 14 July 2009, they proposed copernicium with the element symbol Cn, after Nicolaus Copernicus  "to honor an outstanding scientist, who changed our view of the world".
