Helium is critical to our daily lives
To highlight helium’s various applications we're partnering with some of the world’s most exciting companies to deliver themed monthly opportunities. Expect automotive month, aerospace month, medical month, and more. The experience may be a guided tour of a partner’s facility, a chance to see their technology in action, or the opportunity to fly in a hybrid air vehicle!
January 2024 is Airship Month
Helium is used in airships as a lifting gas to provide buoyancy, allowing the airship to float. Unlike hydrogen, another gas that was historically used for this purpose, helium is inert, non-toxic and non-flammable, making it a safe choice. Zeppelins control their altitude by adjusting the amount of helium in their gas bags. If the airship needs to ascend, more helium is pumped into the gas bags, making the airship less dense than the surrounding air.
