H-5 hydrogen isotope -> flip ?

    H-5 hydrogen isotope -> "flip" ?

    As I understand it...H-5 (hydrogen isotope) = one proton and 4 neutrons.

    If this is true:

    ..."disclosed the 1/2+ ground state of 5H
    concealed in the smooth missing mass spectrum"


    Does 1/2+ spin of H-5 absorb a photon and cause the proton to flip?

    Why do I want to know? I am wondering if THAT superheavy isotope of hydrogen was instrumental in creation...the beginning. If the above is true...it ties in!

    Ancora Imparo (I am still learning!)
