WYLONA But it has to be true, it says so on their wikipedia page.
I’ve taken the theory of Carbon Dating – that science reaches further with a little comedy – and applied it to live programming with a new 501(c)(3) called SCIENCE RIOT, INC.
These 'fantasies' are the core of Carbon Dating's humor and they are pulled off in a tremendous fashion thanks to some expertise editing and visual effects.
It's even more impressive that all of this is pulled off by a single person (Victoria Serra).
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.
Small amounts of carbon-14 are not easily detected by typical Geiger–Müller (G-M) detectors; it is estimated that G-M detectors will not normally detect contamination of less than about 100,000 disintegrations per minute (0.05 µCi).Protons and neutrons make up the center (nucleus) of the atom, and electrons form shells around the nucleus.The number of protons in the nucleus of an atom determines the element.This resemblance is used in chemical and biological research, in a technique called carbon labeling: carbon-14 atoms can be used to replace nonradioactive carbon, in order to trace chemical and biochemical reactions involving carbon atoms from any given organic compound.These are relatively low energies; the maximum distance traveled is estimated to be 22 cm in air and 0.27 mm in body tissue.Note that, contrary to a popular misconception, carbon dating is not used to date rocks at millions of years old.
