Supported by unambiguous results of the spectral-analytical method, we believe we can state right now that there is a fourth metal in the alkali group besides potassium, sodium, and lithium, and it has a simple characteristic spectrum like lithium; a metal that shows only two lines in our apparatus: a faint blue one, almost coinciding with strontium, and another blue one a little further to the violet end of the spectrum and as strong and as clearly defined as the lithium line.
There's always a building up and a tearing down, accept when there's just a race to out degrade each other.
Thanks. I suppose we could draw an analogy from this.

Modern day discovery of new synthetic elements requires both making them and analyzing them, so the paradigm shifted again in the 1930's and 40's.
