118 Element Periodic Table Poster with Hubble Stars and Nebula

This printable periodic table is poster-sized (60 inches across). It features all 118 element names (yes, you’ll find nihonium, moscovium, tennessine, and oganesson on it), with the element symbols, atomic numbers, and atomic weights. It is, in fact, our popular 2016-2017 colorful periodic table, except the background is the incredible public domain Hubble image of the Carina nebula. Elements are made in stars in nebula, after all!

Here’s a smaller version of the table so you can see what it looks like:

Download and Print the Periodic Table Poster

Here’s the .jpg image file for the poster you can download to print or use as your device background. Right-click that image and save it. If you print using a regular printer, choose landscape mode and tell it to fit the page. You can also have a regular printer make a poster by setting it to print multiple panels and then taping them or artfully arranging them to make the table. Another option is to take the image file to a professional printer. Just send them to this page so they can see “Yes, we give permission for you to print this table.”

You might also be interested in some of the other wall murals available on Hubblesite (which also contains their public domain notification, in case you get a persnickety printing company that wants to see proof Nasa/Hubble have released the image to the public).
