It’s not the animated movie. This is a real house – the largest object ever lifted with helium balloons. Check out these 13 incredible helium world records.
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.
When we think of uses for helium, most everyone immediately thinks of party balloons, blimps, and high-pitched voices. However, the uses for helium go far beyond just a few novelties. (Never inhale helium, by the way. It can kill you.) In fact, without helium, we may have never had our supermarket checkouts, iPhones, or even the ability to detect tricky cancers.
Below are the different uses for helium that you probably didn’t know existed.
It’s the largest, most complex machine ever built and has become one of the coldest places on planet Earth. Without helium however, the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is nothing more than a $9 billion tube.
