[ Watch the Video: Yellowstone Releasing Ancient Helium ] Lawrence LeBlond for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online As one might expect, Yellowstone National Park’s hot springs, geysers and other hydrothermal vents release gases stored deep below the Earth, including carbon dioxide and methane. Another gas has also been discovered to be squeaking out of Yellowstone’s vents, and while it is a common gas released from volcanic rocks, in this region, most of it comes from a much...

Scientists Discover New Surprising Details About Table Salt
2013-12-20 08:30:34

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online An international team of scientists has discovered a surprise hidden in the first chemical compound that children learn about: table salt. Under certain high pressure conditions, table salt, scientifically known as sodium chloride, can take on some surprising forms that violate standard chemistry predictions. The findings, published in Science, may hold the key to answering lingering questions about planet formation. The team used...

This work was recently published in Physical Review Letters In contrast to its apparent simplicity (that brought Einstein his Nobel Prize), the photoelectric effect, when an electron is knocked out from its parent atom by a photon, is quite complicated to analyze in general, especially when the atom contains a large number of electrons. Like the many-body problem in classical mechanics, the quantum many-body problem is very difficult to conceptualize and remains a serious challenge for...

Crab Nebula Surprises Astronomers With Noble Gas Molecules

First helium-only application to extract the rare gas from federal lands DALLAS, Oct. 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- IACX Energy has commenced helium production and sales from a new facility located at Harley Dome, Utah, approximately 40 miles west of Grand Junction, Colorado. This facility is the first helium-only application to extract the rare gas from federal lands and is IACX's third helium plant. The Harley Dome field was discovered in 1925 and was designated "Federal Helium...

The noble gases get their collective moniker from their tendency toward snobbishness. The six elements in the family, which includes helium and neon, don't normally bond with other elements and they don't dissolve into minerals the way other gases do. But now, geochemists from Brown University have found a mineral structure with which the nobles deign to fraternize. Researchers led by Colin Jackson, a graduate student in geological sciences, have found noble gases to be highly soluble in...

LEHIGH VALLEY, Pa., Jan. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- "Like fossil fuels, helium is a finite resource. While the known supplies are sufficient to meet demand for more than 100 years, and with advances in exploration and drilling, chances are that we may find even more, this finite resource must be managed," is the message Walter Nelson, director of Helium sourcing at Air Products (NYSE: APD) delivered today at the European Industrial Gas Association (EIGA) Symposium in Brussels, Belgium. Air...

GREENBELT, Md., Aug. 15, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Scientists using the Lyman Alpha Mapping Project (LAMP) spectrometer aboard NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) have made the first spectroscopic observations of the noble gas helium in the tenuous atmosphere surrounding the Moon. (Logo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20081007/38461LOGO) These remote-sensing observations complement in situ measurements taken in 1972 by the Lunar Atmosphere Composition Experiment (LACE)...

New evidence bolsters the notion that deep saline groundwaters in South Africa's Witwatersrand Basin may have remained isolated for many thousands, perhaps even millions, of years. The study, recently accepted for publication in Chemical Geology, found the noble gas neon dissolved in water in three-kilometre deep crevices. The unusual neon profile, along with the high salinities and some other unique chemical signatures, is very different from anything seen in molten fluid and gases rising...
