Lazarian (906722) writes "Scientists from around the world have put forth an update to the Periodic Table of Elements. In particular, they are changing the manner of how atomic weights of ten elements are expressed. From the article:

"For example, sulfur is commonly known to have a standard atomic weight of 32.065. However, its actual atomic weight can be anywhere between 32.059 and 32.076, depending on where the element is found."

The origional article can be found here."
