Actually I have only a vague idea about uses of Helium. Also I did not knew much about its dwindling supplies. Only by reading this post by fellow Ftb blogger and scientist Abe Drayton about the new discovery of Helium in Tanzania that I realised its importance.
When we hear day in and day out about valuable resources drying out, this discovery is quite a game changer. Hope such good news will keep on coming. Hope the poor in Africa will get some real benefit from this.
