  4. Although the Medical Reference Manual theorized 1978 for the discovery of Element 107, the recognized date in real-life was 1981, in Germany. The medical reference is not entirely in error, as there was also a Russian team working on the synthesis on the earlier date, although their findings were deemed inconclusive compared to the 1981 synthesis.
