Elemental Copernicus

According to New Scientist, Nicolaus Copernicus may have a new super-heavy element named after him, if Copernicium is accepted by the International Union for Pure and Applied Chemistry. Copernicus is known, among other things, for declaring that Earth rotates around the sun.

Ironically, Copernicium neutrons rotate around electrons. Well...wouldn't it be ironic *if* the did. (Cough.)
