Atomic number 107

Reef of stability

There are many more numbers associated with bohrium, such as the numbers of neutrons, the excitation energies, and the energies of alpha decays. The half-life numbers look interesting when you arrange them in two dimensions for all known isotopes; its broken fuzzy line suggests the continuation of a possibility.
