The half-life of 84Mo, an even-even N = Z nucleus near the proton dripline created during explosive hydrogen burning in Type I X-ray bursts in the rapid proton capture (rp) process, was remeasured and found to be more than 1σ shorter than the previously adopted value. The effect of the measured half-life on rp-process reaction flow is explored.
