The name derives from the Latin caesius for "sky blue", which was the colour of the caesium line
in the spectroscope. Caesium was discovered by the German chemist Robert Wilhelm Bunsen and the German
physicist Gustav Robert Kirchhoff in 1860. It was first isolated by the German chemist Carl Setterberg
