The atomic number of Molybdenum is 42. Fourty-two is the answer to life, the universe, and everything (see 42 or Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy). Therefore, Molybdenum myst be the answer to life, the universe and everything. (We are still searching for the question that would make sense with this "answer").

However, in all seriousness, this element is a metal that is used in glass melting and in other manufactory that uses high temperatures. This is because it has a very high melting point.
Never call Molybdenum "Moly-Mo" for a science presentation.
