Chemical: Non-flammable and non toxic .Physical: Gas, Colorless, Odorless, Tasteless, and the lowest density of any gas except for Hydrogen. Its many uses include air for party balloons, MRI machines, heat transfer, welding, leak detection, and pressurization and purging.

Helium was first descovered on the sun.Pierre-Jules-César Janssen was the French astronomer who descovered helium. During a solar eclipse he was studying the sun and found that one of its many phenominons was caused by helium. It was discovered in the year 1868.
