You are so dumb. Study some nuclear physics. The currently available isotopes of Ununpentium, 287, 288, 289, and 230 each have 172, 173, 174, and 175
HOWEVER, since Ununpentium has 115 protons, which means Z=115, the neutron number, N, has to be equal to 184. Therefore, for Ununpentium to be stable,
or at least to have a half-life over a day, it has to have the atomic mass of 115+184=299. Ununpentium-299 is too heavy to be created in cold fusion
AND hot fusion laboratories today.
So if we add a proton, p, to Uup-299, we get, Uuh-300. A proton breaks down via the inverse beta decay. P -> n + e+. P is proton, n is neutron, and e+
is a positron, an antimatter. Then, the free neutron, n, created from the previous reaction (decay) does a b- beta decay, turning back to a proton and
releasing an anti electron neutrino and an electron. (n -> p + e- + (-ev)). Without furthur ado, we get: Uup-229+p -> Uuh-300 -> Uup-300 + e+ ->
Uuh-300 + e+ e- + (-ve).
1. The e+, positron antimatter, crashes into e-, electron, 100% annihilating into energy.
2. The -ve, the anti electron neutrino, hits a proton in the uup nucleus, manually causing an inverse beta decay (p+(-ve) -> n + e+: the reaction that
happened at the beginning of the process)
3. Since -ve is generated, the process is repeated until 100% of uup-299 is converted into energy
