Isotope 270 of Hassium, discovered by an international team of scientists led by the Technical University of Munich in December 2006, is a doubly magic isotope with an unusually long half-life of 22 seconds. The existence of such relatively stable heavy isotopes had already been theoretically predicted, with some theories suggesting Hassium-270 may form part of an island of stability
