Great Project! Just an FYI, Meitner helped discover fission, not fusion! Keep up the good work!

The state is called Hessen, not Hesse.

Fantastic!
Just change "Hesse" to "Hessen".
And Darmstadt is a town, not a state.

Very, very nice work. I was reminded of the old "Metal Men" DC comics of my youth back in the 60s - but they never took on the entire periodic table! Best wishes to you and keep up the good work!

Wow! Would love to order a set. Will you be making a kids book or card set?

I hate to add this but if it is for teaching purposes then there is a small correction that must be made. Meitnerium (element 109) is listed as having been named after Lise Meitner (which is correct) however her work put Einstein's equation (e=m*c*c) into context of the observations being made by Otto Hahn (the guy who ended up screwing her over for the Noble Prize) tying the energy output and the loss of matter measured when Strassman and Hahn performed their neutron -> uranium bombardment experiments and found barium and krypton left behind to nuclear fission (breakdown of nuclear components into smaller parts) and not nuclear fusion (the enlargement of a nucleus).

tl&dr Meitner discovered nuclear fission, not nuclear fusion.
