History
The existence of an element between neodymium and samarium was first predicted by Czech chemist Bohuslav Brauner in 1902.

Promethium was first produced and characterized at Oak Ridge National Laboratory in 1945 by Jacob A. Marinsky, Lawrence E. Glendenin and Charles D. Coryell.

It was produced by the separation and analysis of the fission products of uranium fuel irradiated in a graphite reactor.

Applications
Promethium is also used in atomic batteries for spacecraft and guided missiles.

Promethium is also used to measure the thickness of materials by evaluating the amount of radiation from a promethium source that passes through the sample.

It has possible future uses in portable X-ray sources, and as auxiliary heat or power sources for space probes and satellites.
Promethium is harmful due to its radioactivity
