With a half-life of just over 5,000 years, any Carbon-14 atoms that were created in stars, billions of years ago, have long since decayed away into nitrogen atoms.
For decades, radiocarbon dating has been a way for scientists to get a rough picture of when once-living stuff lived.
The method has been revolutionary and remains one of the most commonly used dating methods to study the past. Pearson, an assistant professor of dendrochronology at the University of Arizona, studies the past lives of trees to better understand the history of civilizations.
Radiocarbon dating provides the age of organic remains that overly glacial sediments.
It was one of the earliest techniques to be developed, during the 1940s.
C) dating usually want to know about the radiometric dating methods that are claimed to give millions and billions of years—carbon dating can only give thousands of years.
