Grab your pickax and miner’s helmet and prepare to start digging through this paper, from the upper atmosphere down the core of the planet–and out the other side into the realm of 3D time.Discover the true nature of planetary interiors and the worlds that are hidden inside and beyond–all as a “natural consequence” of the structure of the universe.Even though more than one method of verification is used in most cases, the lack of an accurate method to date non-organic materials lends a certain degree of uncertainty to the accepted history of our planet.It is also important not to forget that throughout the history of humankind any discovery that shakes the status quo is always under attack until it becomes established, and we are in an era where many of the things that we once considered certain will become errors of our past.By making multiple measurements (you need at least two for a date estimate) we can find out how much radiation the item was exposed to over the years and can get dating estimates related to when the item was last heated.
The one-sided version of this may be a Villainous Crush.
This isotope, which can be found in organic materials and can be used only to date organic materials, has been incorrectly used by many to make dating assumptions for non-organic material such as stone buildings.
The half-life of C is approximately 5730 years, which is too short for this method to be used to date material millions of years old.
