  The UCL Periodic Table of the Lecturers: Morris Travers   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-19)
Morris Travers was born in Stroud in Gloucestershire.
Travers was Ramsay 's right hand man during the exciting years of the discovery of the noble gases and subsequently worked on the liquefaction of gases.
Travers' book with the catchy title "The Experimental Study of Gases - An Account of the Experimental Methods Involved in the Determination of the Properties of Gases, and of the More Important Researches Connected with the Subject." was published in 1901.

 Geometry.Net - Artists: Morris William
Morris' work has been strongly influenced by his interest in archeology and ancient pagan cultures, and addresses the timeless relationship between humans and their enviroment.
Another unique aspect of Morris' work is his treatment of surface texture, achieved by various techniques such as sprinkling powdered glass and minerals onto a blown surface, etching, and acid washing to achieve "ancient" and textural diversity.
Morris was an English poet, artist, and socialist reformer, who rejected the opulence on the Victorian era and urged a return to medieval traditions of design, craftsmanship, and community.

 Kr-history   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-19)
Ramsay and Travers set a method for collecting the gas so well, that after discovering the element, the density was also obtained in a single day (May 30, 1898).
Ramsay, now with the aid of Dr. Morris Travers, first tried isolating the gas by heating rare minerals which was used successfully in the past as part of Ramsay's work with nitrogen and the discovery of argon.
Ramsay and Travers discovered the gas sometime after lunch on May 30, 1898 and working until 11 pm that night, the two were also able to determine the density and that the gas belonged between bromine ad rubidium on the periodic table.

Interviewed on Fox News Channel last Friday (May 17), Morris warned fellow Democrats that they would be doing Bush a favor by politicizing the war on terrorism.
The president, said Morris, could then ask voters to send more Republican reinforcements to the Senate and House to replace those who won't stand united against America's common enemy.
Having abandoned bipartisanship, Morris believes Democrats would then be vulnerable to a political counterstrike by Republicans on their strongest post 9/11 issue: patriotism.

 Ramsay, William   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-19)
In 1895 Ramsay produced helium and in 1898, in cooperation with Morris Travers, identified neon, krypton, and xenon.
In 1903, with Frederick Soddy, he noted the transmutation of radium into helium, which led to the discovery of the density and relative atomic mass of radium.
During the next decade Ramsay and Travers sought the remaining rare gases by the fractional distillation of liquid air.

It is appropriate for the proper intelligence oversight committees in Congress to investigate the Sept. 11 terrorist attack, as the objective is to discover if there were intelligence breakdowns and repair any flaws to better protect us in the future.
In the Executive Branch, Travers suggested that U.S. national security policy had been more reactive than anticipatory: "Any attempt to program resources according to consumer needs is a recipe for getting whipsawed from crisis to crisis and cannot be sustained."
Further, "a combination of bureaucratic politics and self-inflicted wounds within the IC will prove to be critical factors responsible for our failure," Travers wrote.

 Facts about Xenon
Xenon was discovered by Sir William Ramsay and Morris Travers in England in 1898.
The famous Russian Scientist, Dimitri Mendeleev, perceived the correct classification method of "the periodic table" for the 65 elements which were known in his time.
The Standardised Periodic Table now recognises more periods and elements than Dimitri Mendeleev knew in his day but still all fitting into his concept of the "Periodic Table" in which Xenon is just one element that can be found.

Xenon occurs in slight traces in gases within the Earth and is present to an extent of about 0.0000086 percent, or about one part in 10,000,000, by volume of dry air.
In the sequence of several studies made by Sir William Ramsay (1852-1916) and Morris W. Travers (1872-1961), in 1898, and by repeated fractionation of Krypton an extremely dense gas was obtained that those two scientists were unable to identify (12 July 1898).
The spectroscopic analysis of that gas revealed that was a new element that was named Xenon.

After his discovery of Argon, Sir William Ramsay (1852-1916), joined by an assistant, Morris W. Travers (1872-1961), continued to search for another member of the expected inert gas family lighter than Argon.
After the publication by Ramsay and Travers of their findings, Ramsay's friend Marcellin Berthelot (1827-1907) suggested a better name for Krypton: "La forte raie verte 5566.3 du krypton coïncide sensiblement avec la brillante raie n° 4 (5567) de l’aurore boréale.

 Ne-history   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-19)
Sir William Ramsay and Morris W. Travers were still celebrating their discovery of krypton in May when they discovered neon one month later in June.
With a clear trend of noble gases now established on the periodic table, the duo had a specific space to fill with an element that had an atomic weight of around 20.
Continuing their search for the lighter gas, Travers and Ramsay liquefied and solidified the argon by surrounding three liters of it with liquid air boiling under reduced pressure, allowing the argon to volatilize, while collecting the portion that distilled off first.

After his discovery of Argon (1894) and the isolation of Helium (1895) the British chemist Sir William Ramsay ((1852-1916), was faced with an almost insuperable problem: he had found the first and the third member of the group of inert gases (Helium and Argon), and now needed to find the intermediate member.
Joined by an assistant Morris W. Travers (1872-1961), he continued to search this member of the inert gas family.
On 30 May 1898 they discovered Krypton (but, they were not looking for that gas, the fourth member of the inert gas family).
