Krypton

Krypton is an inert, monatomic gaseous element, present in very small amounts in the atmosphere. Sir William Ramsay and Morris Travers were founder of Kryptonin 1898. It is used commercially as a filling gas for energy-saving fluorescent lights. It is also used in some flash lamps which are used for high-speed photography. Krypton is one of the rarest gases in the Earth’s atmosphere. It makes up just 1 part per million by volume. It is extracted by distillation of air that has been cooled until it is a liquid. As it is a heavy gas, it is used as sealing between the glass of some double-paned windows to help them trap heat. Krypton has other scientific superpowers as well. Radioactive isotopes of krypton - versions of the atom with differing numbers of neutrons in their nuclei are produced naturally when cosmic rays from space hit krypton atoms in the atmosphere.
