A new hassium isotopes $$^{263}$$Hs is directly produced for the first time. The experiment was performed at the linear accelerator (RILAC) facility in RIKEN (the Institute of Physical and Chemical Research) from Jun. 19 to 25. In the 25-h irradiation of $$^{58}$$Fe on $$^{206}$$Pb and 46-h irradiation of $$^{56}$$Fe on $$^{208}$$Pb, 8 decay chains and 1 decay chain, respectively, were observed. All decay chains were assigned to subsequent decays from $$^{263}$$Hs. The half-life of $$^{263}$$Hs is 0.60$$^{+0.30}_{-0.15}$$ ms. In this experiment, the total beam dose was $$4.1times10^{17}$$ ions for $$^{58}$$Fe and $$6.2times10^{17}$$ ions for $$^{56}$$Fe. The production cross section corresponding to 8 decay events and 1 decay chain was deduced to be 21$$^{+10}_{-8}$$ pb and 1.6$$^{+3.7}_{-1.3}$$ pb by assuming that the transmission of the system is 80%.
