      Yes we havn’t reached the limit of creating new elements. However, we can only find heavier and heavier elements now, which are extremely hard to make, since you need to crash smaller atoms together and hope they stick together! Likely we need better technology to make more new ones from my understanding. However we will probably never make enough of these new elements to ever have enough to see with the naked eye.
