  • NUCLEAR PHYSICSDARMSTADT, GERMANY-- Three teams of nuclear physicists are racing to disprove that as superheavy elements get bigger, they are always more unstable. In their sights is element 114, which is postulated to be exceptionally long-lived due to a so-called "island of stability" surrounding it. The first group to zero in on it could capture one of physics's biggest prizes.
