It is predicted that a transuranic element will eventually be synthesised that could have a half life of millions of years. Supposing this Elmerfuddium had physical properties that would revolutionize industry, possibly as a compound elmerfuddium hydrochloride or something. We could learn to make it cheaply from uranium,. Is there any scientific reason to think this impossible?

Methinks they might be just hunting wascally wabbits, or on a snipe hunt. Other predictions of up to 300 years seem more plausible where we live, given absence of naturally occurring (remaining?) ones. It does make me curious about element formation in the moments before a black hole is formed. What a creative doomed crucible that must be.

Unfortunately, the age of creating higher atomic numbered isotopes seems to be running out, well before reaching the Island of Stability.
