59.

The Chemical Element Praseodymium has an atomic number of 59.

The Chemical Element Cobalt has one Stable Isotope. It has 59 neutrons.

In the UK, the bingo nickname for number 59 is 'The Brighton Line', after the London, Brighton & South Coast Railway.

59 is an album by Japanese pop duo Puffy AmiYumi.

In the year 59 AD King Dionysius II of Sicilia died. He was succeeded by Phillip II.

Life, Cobalt-59 has an atomic weight of 59, not 59 neutrons. It has 59 nucleons (27 protons and 32 neutrons).

SCIENCE.

60:

The first Buckyball had 60 atoms of carbon in it.

There are 60 seconds in a minute, and 60 minutes in an hour. Smile

60 is the highest possible score in Darts in a single turn.

lol.

No, it's wrong. It's important to distinguish between atomic number, atomic weight, and number of neutrons. The atomic number is the number of protons (for Cobalt, 27). The atomic weight is the mass of the atom, in number of nucleons (for Cobalt, usually 59). So the number of neutrons is the difference.

Note that most periodic tables show a decimal number as the atomic weight. This takes into account the traces of isotopes, be they stable or not, in an average sample. So for Cobalt, the atomic weight is 58.933, so there are a number of isotopes with fewer than 32 neutrons in an average sample. As a result, there are 58.933 grams per mole of Cobalt (a mole being 6.02 x 10^23 atoms).

Thanks, Taral. Always fun to learn something new - or to have something clarified. But I should have checked online before hand.



Let's see if I can find a website that has accurate science facts ...

61.

Along with atomic number 43, atomic number 61 is the only atomic number smaller than 83 who's Chemical Element (Promethium) is not stable.

In Humans 61 codons specify individual amino acids. (Again, as I feel I can no longer trust my school textbooks, I'm trying out a new website, which I've not yet confirmed to be completely accurate, and these are from that site - though I have found other sites that back these facts up: The genetic code = 64 combinations of triplet nucleotides.
61 codons for amino acids and 3 codons for stopping synthesis.
, and wikipedia of all places for the former).

61 is the international dialling code for Australia.

The sum of the first 13 digits of pi is 61.

On the 61st day of the normal year, Theodor Seuss Geisel, author of Dr Seuss, was born in 1904.

On the 61st day of the leap year, Chopin was born in 1810.

The average gestation period for dogs is 61 days.

The official length for an ince hockey rink must be no more than 61 metres.

In 61 AD - London is sacked during a rebellion led by the Iceni tribeswoman, Boudica (not to be pronounced 'Boadicea'). In the same year, her rebellion was crushed, and her most likely killed.

63.

The Chemical Element Europium has an atomic number of 63.

In 63 AD Vespasian became governor of Africa.

63 is the number of partially ordered sets of 5 elements.

63 is the number of chromosomes found in the offspring of a donkey and a horse.
