You read that right. IBM scientists have managed to store one bit of data on a single atom. And they needed supercooled helium to do it.
Cost is always crucial when choosing a helium supplier, but there’s much more to it. Will you get what you paid for, or will you be left deflated?
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.
Helium has long been known to be a stable, noble gas. New research claims it may not be. If it’s true, the periodic table as we know it may be rewritten.
Like an airbag in your car, this helium bike helmet is a hidden device that cyclists wear around their neck, which inflates just before a crash.
Next time you’re bored at a party and want to take some kid’s money (kidding), bet said kid (still kidding) that you can pop a latex balloon using nothing but an orange peel and magic. Seal the deal by promising that you’ll never touch the balloon!
Think you’ve seen a balloon pop? Think again. We’ve compiled 10 insane slow motion balloon burst videos that you simply cannot miss.
MIT researchers have been doing some incredible experiments with ultra-light graphene, which some believe could replace helium in balloons.
Engineers at UC San Diego are working to try to better forecast hurricanes by releasing swarms of sensor-laden helium balloons right into the storms.
We came across a video of a 60-foot-long helium balloon robot arm that you just have to see to believe. It is the real-life version of War of the Worlds.
