Abstract

We are in a race to synthesize new elements — each with more protons and neutrons than ever before. Unlike naturally occurring elements, these newly created elements seem ephemeral — ceasing to exist almost as soon as they are created. What makes them so unstable? Why do we synthesize them? What does their creation reveal to us?
