Summary
The achievement is the first time scientists have measured the half-life (the amount of time it takes to lose half its radioactivity) of this xenon isotope based on a direct observation of its radioactive decay.

This is the original Nature paper: https://www.nature.com/articles/s41586-019-1124-4
It is paywalled. The arxiv version is here: https://arxiv.org/abs/1904.11002
Please make a habit of providing the original reference and not a popular magazine reporting (or at least one that cites the original paper).
Hi Orodruin:

I promise I will try to do it better next time.

Thanks for posting the arxiv link.

BTW: I found another Nature source which has a lot more information than the Nature paper abstract.

Regards,
Buzz
