Perhaps the best known use for helium is to levitate balloons at parties and the inevitable voice changing characteristic that occurs when someone invariably inhales the helium contained in one of those balloons. But contrary to popular belief, helium is not all fun and games.
This non-toxic, inert gas (unless the temperature drops below -269 C where it becomes liquid) has many intriguing scientific and technological uses. In rocket propulsion it is used to pressurize liquid hydrogen fuel tanks, because only helium is still a gas at liquid-hydrogen temperature. But I’m sure Richard Branson and Jeff Bezos already knew that.
Helium One Global Ltd (LON:HE1) was founded in September 2015. The Company’s focus is to explore, develop, and ultimately, become a producer of high-grade helium for the international market, a critical material essential in modern technologies.
