(Hinrich Schaefer/Oregon State University) Scientists have a new tool in the quest to learn more about Earth’s ancient climate, including the mechanisms that plunged our planet into and out of ice ages.The new tool is a scientific technique called radiometric krypton dating, which recently allowed researchers to accurately determine the age of a 120,000-year-old Antarctic ice core sample.Holly will host ITV's brand new dating show Holly opened up about the new dating show, saying: "We all know how embarrassing parents can be and nobody knows you better than they do."I can't wait to hear what humiliating secrets they'll be revealing and see who will regret leaving their love life in the hands of their parents." The mother-of-three recently showed off a new hairstyle while hosting the show.Sharing a selfie of her new shoulder-length hair, she said: "New show… @itvmeettheparents thanks everyone who came down to watch tonight!
One of the most important steps for scientists investigating past climatic events is the ability to find polar ice samples that date back as far into time as possible.
These ice samples contain frozen bubbles of ancient air that can be analyzed in a laboratory, allowing scientists to reconstruct Earth’s climate history.
“The oldest ice found in drilled cores is around 800,000 years old and with this new technique we think we can look in other regions and successfully date polar ice back as far as 1.5 million years,” said Oregon State University’s Christo Buizert, lead author of the PNAS paper.
Scientists have found that the carbon dating system doesn’t work well on ice samples because the carbon-14 isotope is produced within the ice itself by cosmic rays and is only able to date material to about 50,000 years ago.
will see a contestant's parents meeting their potential suitor and aiming to impress with stories about their child, before the picker finally chooses which contestant they most like the sound of to date.
The picker on the hunt for romance will be able to ask the parents anything and everything about their offspring, from relationship history to hilarious childhood stories, while their son or daughter will be watching the whole interaction behind the scenes, with no control over what their parents let slip to the suitor (and on national television! After several parents chat to the potential suitor about their child, the picker then makes the decision on who they would most like to date and will finally meet their potential match, but not before they come face-to-face with every person they have turned down through their parents.
