Helium is abundant in the Sun's atmosphere and is found at trace level in the Earth's atmosphere. The name helium comes from the Greek helios meaning "the Sun".
Helium PictureHowever, it may also be found in fossil form in natural gas pockets in some oil fields, where it is extracted by drilling deep into the subsoil of certain regions in the U.S.A., Algeria and Poland. Helium is an extremely light gas (its density is 0.169 kg/m3) and is therefore very volatile. It is colorless, odorless, non-flammable and completely inert. It cannot sustain life.
