I'm surprised that Unobtainium didn't make the list . . .

RESPONSE:
UNOBTAINIUM IS AN ENGINEERING MATERIAL OR LEGAL FICTION --

THE APOCRYPHAL' ELEMENTS ' LISTED HERE WERE ALL PRODUCED AS PHYSICAL SAMPLES & DESCRIBED IN THE CHEMICAL LITERATURE.

Hang on there; Thoron was an early name for Radon. If that's included, Columbium should be too.
RESPONSE;

IT'S MORE OR LESS THERE AS MESOTHORIUM. THE SUBJECT IS MISTAKEN IDENTITY , NOT PRIORITY OF DISCOVERY , OR CATFIGHTS OVER NAMING ISOTOPIC PRODUCTS OF FISSION OR RADIOACTIVE DECAY

I presume the prize medal will be a strong emitter of N-rays...
RESPONSE
If you donate an all wood diffraction grating our Special Effects Directorate will check. It currently plans to pin a curium-plated tin medal to Laureate Lerher's tailcoat, and invite the audience to throw celebratory lumps of coal at him.

The relativistic tail of the better pitches' velocity distribution should generate nobelium as carbon and curium nuclei collide
