SOwithout using the word probability,!! please would someone explain the mechanism that determines , WHEN the atom goes pop??
When will THIS ATOM metaphorically go pop and decay.
It could be now or perhaps any time from now to thousands of years.

Ö and WHEN the atom goes pop??
I,m very interested in all your replies but so far no one had suggested that the action is produced by non internal to the atom activity and as likely universal action not within the atom.Mixture of superposition and entanglement across the space time field!
Let:(3,1)T = A nucleon
having 3 protons and 1 neutron and therefore is an isotope of tritium.
However this requires understanding high-energy particle physics, which Iím not skilled at. Thatís why I used something I was familiar with, i.e. alpha decay, which is what I gave
(3,2)He+ = positively charged ion of helium having 3 protons and 2 neutrons and therefore is a an isotope of helium
Ionized Tritium (triton) is nucleus, not nucleon.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nucleon
Tritium has 1 proton and 2 neutrons...Atom with 3 protons is Lithium.

Yet another wrong.
Calculation of decay energy is key method to check whether some isotope is stable, or not stable.
Sorry folks I just selected tritium as part of my life has been spent firing deuterons electrically at tritium with a predictable result ! For a specific result!
No, the question relates to any radio isotope, decaying alpha, beta, or gamma, neutron , neutrino or any other bit.The question was what causes the single atom to decay... ( POP!). Ie. WHEN!The don't know answer is fine ! What appears clearly to me, it that TIME is a factor, and time is my obsession !

Have you read this?http://www.economist.com/blogs/babbage/2012/08/neutrinos-and-solar-stormsJere Jenkins and Ephraim Fischbach detected that decay rate for a couple isotopes are varying depending on Solar activity.
dear PmbPhy may I refer you to Richard Feynman's famous saying
To Ultimate Theory. Ref tritium and deutrerons result fast neutrons
Ref Elliot automation Borehamwood 1960s. Called. "L tube" otherwise you need to go to Christmas Island 1960's
