At one point the characters use "a carbon probe" to date a dead alien body. Carbon based dating of organic remains is based on knowing both the ratio of radioactive carbon isotopes over time in a planetary atmosphere, and the level of such carbon absorbed into the body of a living organism by it breathing.
