The looming solar eclipse has us excited about the sun lately, so we thought we’d dive into how it uses nuclear fusion to make helium.
A new technique developed by Talissa Altes, MD uses helium imaging to see how the treatment for cystic fibrosis is working in different patients.
This is the year for Moon Express, who just received another round of funding to pursue their goal of mining helium-3 from the moon.
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.
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?
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.
It’s been suspected over 40 years, but thanks to NASA’s LADEE mission, we finally have confirmation of neon and helium in the moon’s atmosphere.
