The wonders of helium

Helium is the second-most abundant element in the universe. It has two protons in its nucleus, therefore two electrons orbit it. This clear, odorless, tasteless gas is 86% less dense than room air.

Listed as the second element on the periodic table of elements, helium was discovered in 1868. Several scientists have since been listed as having an early interest in the discovery this noble gas. The name helium was assigned because of the yellow line around the sun’s rim noted by astronomers in the late 1800s. Helios was the name for the Greek sun god.

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.
