Nuclides in carbon 14 dating
—As the story goes, explosion after explosion took place as loose gas pressed itself into stars and then those stars exploded.Hundreds of billions of stars were exploding all over the universe. There was no reason why it started, and there was no way for it to stop.Because of Gamow, the Big Bang hypothesis is very widely accepted in the scientific community today.Scientists are not sure why nothing should want to come together, much less what pushed it there (especially since everything else in the universe was already supposed to be empty).In addition, numbers were provided to add an additional scientific flair: This remarkable lack-of-anything was said by Gamow to have a density of 10 to the 145th power g/cc, or one hundred trillion times the density of water!"The naive view implies that the universe suddenly came into existence and found a complete system of physical laws waiting to be obeyed . Actually it seems more natural to suppose that the physical universe and the laws of physics are interdependent." —*—At some point after the explosion (theories vary as to when) as temperatures cooled, it is theorized that the nothingness magically turned itself into hydrogen!Then, with true scientific aplomb, he named this solid core of nothing, "ylem" (pronounced "ee-lum").With a name like that, many people thought this must be a great scientific truth of some kind.
Gamow dubbed it the "Big Bang." Campaigning for the idea enthusiastically, he was able to convince many other scientists.But in some strange manner, unexplainable by the laws of physics, it did it anyway.Push, push, push; the void grew denser as more shoved its way in. )*Gamow described it in scientific terms: In violation of physical law, emptiness fled from the vacuum of space—and rushed into a superdense core, that had a density of 1094gm/cm2 and a temperature in excess of 10" degrees absolute.Because Gamow was also a part-time science-fiction writer, he enjoyed writing about impossible things, like green men traveling through deep space in rockets, zapping one another with ray guns.So when it came to explaining the "Big Bang" theory to fellow scientists, he used quaint little cartoons to emphasize the details. Illustrating his points with these intriguing little cartoons, he caught the attention of young scientists.
