Is The World Running Out Of Helium? We are not able to create helium and yet depend on it for MRI scanners, scientific equipment, and medical tools. It could potentially run out in a decade. Why is no one taking about this?
At the National Helium Reserve in Amarillo, Texas, the US government once stored 32 billion cubic feet of helium. There have been breathless news articles re...
@b3nji so, where did all the helium we have come from, and how did it get there? (Curious, not being snarky)
Unfortunately there is no chemical way of manufacturing helium with the supplies on Earth coming from the slow radioactive alpha decay that occurs in rocks.
