    One of the smartest guys in the natural gas business is building a new helium facility in the Western U.S. that could be a game changer. His company is private, but it is evidence of the welcome entrance of private entrepreneurship into the helium market. Congress continues to prove itself incapable of making rational market decisions. I will be up to market forces to bring balance back to the helium market, but the public companies you reference are all good targets for the investing public.

    Super magnets like the MRI at the local hospital are more and more being cooled by coolants that replaced liquid helium. For extra fun at the kiddies birthday fill the balloons with hydrogen. Note about the Hindenburg it was designed to be lifted by Helium which FDR approved but was overruled by cabinet. The Hindenburg burned because it turned out that the hull was painted with a crude form of liquid rocket fuel. It should be noted that the Zeppelins flew for almost three decades without an accident, injury, or fatality.

    Thank you for your reply and added detail regarding the Hindenburg. Many have been of the belief that its explosion had to do with the zepplin’s covering, however, according to Airships.net, the disaster had nothing to do with that.

    They state, “Hindenburg was just one of many hydrogen airships destroyed by fire because of their flammable lifting gas, and suggestions about the alleged flammability of the ship’s outer covering have been repeatedly debunked. The simple truth is that Hindenburg was destroyed in 32 seconds because it was inflated with hydrogen.”

    Surely it’s a story that will go down in history.

    I have a small amount of knowledge in regard to stocks and such. I’m currently pursuing a Bachelor’s, but from what I’ve read it is practically impossible to invest in helium? Essentially, you can buy stock in these companies because they are the largest owners of helium, but their stock prices are being affected by practically every other aspect of their company. Why would I invest in these businesses if I want to invest in helium, when realistically it’s no different than investing in oil?
