Some of the most recent theoretical estimates for the age of nucleation fall throughout the Neoproterozoic era; much younger than previously thought. A young inner core requires faster recent core cooling rates and a likely hotter early core; knowledge of its age would be invaluable in understanding Earth's thermal history and total energy budget.
