In the United States, helium can be used for many different things. It can be used for advertising purposes, recreation, purge systems, and low-temperature cooling systems.Objects that float in the air, such as balloons, blimps, and other things of that nature, are filled with...

The human body is one of the most complex and in depth mammals to walk this planet. The human body is so well thought out and made, it is almost as if it was a planned, in depth process in the making. When the first...

Helium, the second element on the periodic table of elements, is a very underrated discovery. This leader of the noble gases is a very important treasure and we should thank the man who detected it, Pierre Jansen. Pierre stumbled upon the element of helium when...

The idea that everything on this planet is made of matter has been around for thousands of years, as has the idea that all matter is composed of some time of smaller, indivisible particle. That theory was never really tested experimentally until later, as the...
