Did You Know?


The show makes reference to "Element 115" as the fuel for the Sphere. Between July 14 and Aug. 10, 2003, element 115 was discovered by Scientists from the Glenn T. Seaborg Institute and the Chemical Biology and Nuclear Science Division at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, in collaboration with researchers from the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research in Russia (JINR). It has an atomic mass of 295, with 180 neutrons, and isotopes with atomic masses of 287 and 288. The total quantity produced was four atoms. As of 2004, it has not been officially named, but has a provisional designation of Ununpentium. In the periodic table, it appears in the same column as the elements Nitrogen, Phosphorus, Arsenic, Antimony and Bismuth and shares many of their chemical properties. The use of element 115 in this series is a reference to an interview with Robert Lazar, who claimed to be a former Area 51 worker. In this interview, he said that Ununpentium was an element used by UFOs to produce anti-gravity effects. See more »

Very Enjoyable Series
10 August 2000 | by (IL, USA) – See all my reviews

This is a great series. While it had the problem of being the same every week, the producers were able to create different stories and situations to avoid that. The interactions between the characters are very good. You can't help but like these people. I always crack a smile when Frank is trying to flirt with Olga, the bickering between Frank and Ramsey, or when we get a peek into Dr. Ballard's amazingly good love life. This is a great show. Very light. A great watch when trying to unwind after a long day.

As for the reason why Frank doesn't run into himself: Because when Frank goes back in time, he "jumps" into himself minus a week. That's how Never Never Land knows a backstep has taken place. Frank and the Sphere disappear. Regards. :-)
