This one is dedicated to Susan Gerbic and her team of wikipedia editors, fighting the good fight against facts claimed without references. You mean that somebody just made up all that stuff about them? Since last January we’ve been bringing science programming to bars, theaters, and comic cons in Colorado.As I often say during Facebook arguments: link, or it didn’t happen. Our flagship program is called the Peer Revue, where we teach scientists to perform stand-up comedy then throw them on stage in front of a live audience.Isotopes participate in the same chemical reactions but often at differing rates.
No other scientific method has managed to revolutionize man’s understanding not only of his present but also of events that already happened thousands of years ago.
Archaeology and other human sciences use radiocarbon dating to prove or disprove theories.
Over the years, carbon 14 dating has also found applications in geology, hydrology, geophysics, atmospheric science, oceanography, paleoclimatology, and even biomedicine.
Radiocarbon, or carbon 14, is an isotope of the element carbon that is unstable and weakly radioactive. Carbon 14 is continually being formed in the upper atmosphere by the effect of cosmic ray neutrons on nitrogen 14 atoms.
It is rapidly oxidized in air to form carbon dioxide and enters the global carbon cycle.
