Not included in this chapter are at least 62 statements by scientists.
This may involve long decay chains, with each daughter product decaying into other daughter substances, until finally only an inert element remains that has no radioactivity.
In some instances, the parent substance may decay directly into the end product.
According to *Van Allen, high-altitude tests revealed that it emits 3000-4000 times as much radiation as the cosmic rays that continually bombard the earth. But we know next to nothing about this belt—what it is, why it is there, or whether it has changed in the past. Even small amounts of variation or change in the Van Allen belt would significantly affect radioactive substances.
(7) A basic assumption of all radioactive dating methods is that .
There is a basic pattern that occurs in the decay of radioactive substances.
In each of these disintegration systems, the parent or original radioactive substance gradually decays into daughter substances.
These factors can change or vary with a change in certain conditions.
(6) The Van Allen radiation belt encircles the globe.
It is about 450 miles [724 km] above us and is intensely radioactive.
But it is a known fact among scientists that such changes in decay rates can and do occur.
Laboratory testing has established that such resetting of specimen clocks does happen.
