History

Element 114 has a 30-second half-life, which is much longer than element 112's. This is evidence of the island of stability that was predicted to occur around element 114 (where the combination of protons and neutrons would combine to make a stable structure).

A beam containing 48Ca was aimed into a 244Pu target to make this atom.
