Ever leave helium balloons in your car in the winter only to later find them deflated on the seats? Here’s why it happens and what to do about it.
Check the weather report and you might find that there is a chance of rain this week. Check Saturn’s and you’ll find there is a chance of helium… helium rain.
You don’t really hear about it in the U.S., but there is a moon race going on right now and it’s all centered around mining helium-3.
Helium is a finite resource on Earth, but the sun mass produces the stuff. Through an idea called stellar lifting, we might one day extract helium from the sun.
Could leaking helium be the warning system we’ve been searching for when it comes to predicting volcanic activity?
We may have just found water on Mars, but will that be the planet we go to? NASA has wild plans for exploring Venus using a manned helium airship.
You know we are advocates against inhaling helium, but in a controlled medical environment, inhaling helium can actually help detect early lung damage.
Imagine, something the size of a pea worth $5 million. That’s the value of helium-3 and while it’s rare on Earth, the moon is full of it. Why do you care?
Astronomers are using helium-filled hard drives to capture the first-ever image of a supermassive black hole – a feat that proved impossible with regular drives.
By smashing together gold and helium-3 ions, a particle collider has created tiny droplets of the same primordial soup formed at the Big Bang.
