HELIUM (He)

Helium us abundant in the Sun's atmosphere and is found at trace level in the Earth's atmosphere. Helium is an extremely light gas and is therefore very volatile. It is colorless, odorless, non-flammable and completely inert. It cannot sustain life.

Helium is most commonly used for balloon inflation and leak detection.
