  1. The boundaries of the Chart of Nuclides contain exotic isotopes that possess extreme proton-toneutron asymmetries. Here we report on two of the most exotic proton-rich isotopes where at least one half of their constitute nucleons are unbound. While the ground state of 8C is a resonance, its first excited state lies in the diffuse borderland between nuclear states and fleeting scattering features. Evidence for 9N, with seven protons and two neutrons, is also presented. This extremely proton-rich system represents the first-known example of a ground-state five-proton emitter. The energies of these states are consistent with theoretical predictions of an open-quantum-system approach.
