Washington University's Science on Tap series is back for the spring 2020 semester. This month, Sophia Hayes, professor of chemistry, presents "Helium: a Mighty Element in Short Supply." Helium is a remarkable gas with special properties and is on the U.S. government's “critical materials” list. Many of us think about party balloons, but helium’s reach goes much further, into medicine, consumer electronics and newly emerging quantum information/quantum-computing realms. This presentation will discuss why this shortage is an issue and what's special about the U.S.’s Strategic Helium Reserve, which is due for shutdown in fall 2021. Register for free here.
