"Absolute" ages of geological events can often be determined the decay of certain radioactive elements in minerals that form in igneous rock. The decay of radioactive parent atoms into stable daughter atoms (e.g., Uranium 235 to Lead-207) occurs at a constant rate, such that each element has a specific half-life. The half- life of U-235, for example, is about 0.7 billion years
