Coincidentally, on Dec. 30, 2015 the IUPAC's working group had reached consensus on verification of the discovery of four new isotopes that fill out the seventh row of the periodic table. All those isotopes are found to be highly unstable and a new three letter identifier is being assigned designating Unstable Isotopes. Might be good to follow for big discoveries of 2016, as the announcement was made after the turn of the year. jrc

Right. Quantifying it.
