Which chemical element has the symbol Ta?

tantalum
titanium
tin
astatine
Tantalum was named by its dis­cov­er­er, Swedish chemist Anders Ekberg for Tan­ta­lus, a Greek mytho­log­i­cal figure, most famous for his eternal pun­ish­ment in Tar­tarus. Tantalus was made to stand in a pool of water beneath a fruit tree with low branch­es, with the fruit ever eluding his grasp, and the water always receding before he could take a drink. Ekberg selected the name because the elment's in­abil­i­ty to absorb acid recalled Tan­ta­lus' pun­ish­ment to him.
