Rhenium's atomic number is 75 and its symbol is Re. Rhenium was the last stable element to be discovered and gets its name from the river Rhine in Europe. Its late discovery is probably due to the fact that it’s one of the rarest elements in the earth's crust making up only 1 part per billion.
Most of the world's rhenium is added to superalloys to make jet engine parts. Certain isotopes of rhenium are radioactive and are used to treat cancer.
