Radiocarbon dating uses carbon isotopes. Carbon-14 is an unstable isotope of carbon that will eventually decay at a known rate to become carbon-12. Cosmic rays – high-energy particles from beyond the solar system – bombard Earths upper atmosphere continually, in the process creating the unstable carbon-14.
