Principle of carbon dating
Laboratory research has shown that the radioactive decay of Carbon-14 occurs in a half-life of 5,73040 years through beta decay that causes the Carbon-14 to revert back to Nitrogen-14.The impact of the radiocarbon dating technique on modern man has made it one of the most significant discoveries of the 20th century.
Under normal conditions, diamond, carbon nanotubes, and graphene have the highest thermal conductivities of all known materials.
Following Time's lead, we reported that although radiocarbon tests have dated the shroud to 1260-1390 A.
D., no one has been able to account for the shadowy image of a naked 6-foot-tall man that appears on the shroud.
