koops Posted October 23, 2013 Posted October 23, 2013 I would suspect they are. But Ununpentium was synthesized in 2003 and it doesn't really fit with Sheldon's field of work. They do take a lot of artistic licenses with all of their work. Sheldon working with Raj or the fusion reactor proposal from last year was also a bit off his field of work. I guess they imply that since discovering new elements involves bombarding particles with other particles, that it is something a theoretical particle physicist could predict? I don't think the episode will be about Ununpentium itself though, I meant that they probably just were inspired by these news to write the episode about it.
