Interactive Table of Nuclides Mouse-over an isotope (i.e., nuclide) and then click on your selection to reveal properties such as the binding energy per nucleon, the lifetime and decay modes (select the property at the top to set the color code). Use the "Zoom" setting to focus on a subset of nuclides. From the National Nuclear Data Center
KAERI Table of Nuclides Click on a region to zoom in. Lifetimes (half-lives) are displayed by color and the driplines are easy to identify. From the Korea Atomic Energy Research Institute.
Particle Data Group site Find out particle properties from the Summary Tables section. The Reviews, Tables, and Plots section has information on physical constants, units, and much more, as well as articles that summarize quantum chromodynamics and many other topics.
