Dubnium

What the name means: Russian scientists named element # 105 nielsbohrium (Ns). However, the American group in Berkeley had named element # 105 hahnium (Ha) after the German scientist, Otto Hahn.

The International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) temporarily named the new element Unnilpentium, with the symbol Unp. In 1997 the IUPAC settled the question by naming it dubnium, after the town near Moscow where the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research is situated .
