Is einsteinium synthetic or man made?
Einsteinium is an element that was discovered in the radioactive debris of the first hydrgoen bomb in the USA so technically it can be natural and there actually was Einsteinium in primordial Earth but it all decayed by now. Nowadays it is created in nuclear plants and its basically a mashing of plutonium and aluminum so now it is mostly synthetic.
