Hank gives us a tour of the most important table ever, including the life story of the obsessive man who championed it, Dmitri Mendeleev. The periodic table of elements is a concise, information-dense catalog of all of the different sorts of atoms in the universe, and it has a wealth of information to tell us if we can learn to read it.

I love crash course chemistry! Your amazing Hank!
My chemistry teacher is a nice lady but an awful teacher. Everything she says is gibberish to me. So I've been teaching myself the content outside of class and this guy is such an effective teacher
"you are Mendeleev. Master of the Elements."
wait… does this mean Mendeleev was the Avatar!?
