Carbon is found in all living cells. It participates in many chemical reactions. This non-metallic element has been known since prehistoric time.

Chemically speaking, it tends to keep to itself, with no real inclination to react with other elements. Helium is a gas that is lighter than air. Helium has the lowest melting point of any element. The melting point is so low that it would not solidify even at absolute zero under ordinary pressure.

You are plutonium. Plutonium is a rare, radioactive metal. It is used to produce nuclear power and as an explosive in nuclear weapons. The complete detonation of a kilogram of plutonium produces an explosion equal to that produced by 20,000 tons of chemical explosives. The pure metal is silver, but it turns yellowish when it tarnishes in air. Plutonium gives off enough energy from alpha decay that the metal is warm to the touch.
