  1. I noticed there's a book on the show coming out The Outer Limits - TV Milestones Author Joanne Morreale Paperback (05 Apr 2022) Wayne State University Press In this TV Milestone, author Joanne Morreale highlights the differences of The Outer Limits (ABC 1963-65) from typical programs on the air in the 1960s.

  9. If it's gold or silver (which you'd assume a wedding ring would be), there's no carbon I'd think.
  10. I wonder if they'll run into the cast from the movie "10,000 B.C." at some point?
  11. Can you carbon date a diamond that's already tens of thousands (or more) of years old?
