Isotopes of krypton

There are 34 known isotopes of krypton (36Kr) with atomic mass numbers from 69 through 102.[5][6] Naturally occurring krypton is made of five stable isotopes and one (78
) which is slightly radioactive with an extremely long half-life, plus traces of radioisotopes that are produced by cosmic rays in the atmosphere.
