Periodic Table Picnic Table

I can’t remember where I first came across this very cool piece of usable art (probably somewhere on ScienceBlogs).

It’s located on campus at Wake Forest University in North Carolina, created as part of a public art program. The table is completely scientifically accurate in compliance with the Internation Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC), which recognises that elements above 112 “have been reported but not fully authenticated”.
