Harnessing the Power of the Sun

Written by Jason Williams

The Kardashev scale is a method of measuring a civilization’s level of technological advancement based on the amount of energy it is able to harness.

It’s a very hypothetical scale in that humanity is the only civilization we really know anything about.

And it regards energy consumption at a cosmic level.

It’s been revised a couple of times, but its three main categories have remained about the same:

  • Type I civilizations are able to harness the power of the stars through nuclear fusion.
  • Type II civilizations harness that same power, but are able to do it across several planets across several planetary systems.
  • Type III civilizations harness the same power and are able to do so across all possible stars of one or more galaxies.

In case you hadn’t figured it out yet, we’re not even a Type I civilization yet.

We’ve yet to harness the power found in our own sun, let alone expand our civilization across several planets.

In order to do that, we need to become better at utilizing the elements we’ve been lucky enough to have show up here on Earth.

Like helium…

Named after the Greek god of the sun, Helios, helium was first detected in the sun long before it was discovered here on Earth.

And it’s the sun’s namesake that could help us reach that Type I level...

More Than Balloons and Blimps

You see, helium has tons of uses other than filling balloons for parties and blimps for parades.

Because it can diffuse quickly and is non-combustible, helium is the gas of choice for instantly deploying airbags in the event of a vehicle crash.

It’s also very good at detecting leaks in things like the hull of a ship or the air conditioning line of your car or house because of that quick diffusion quality.

And its non-flammable nature makes it the perfect gas to use as a shield in welding. Not only does it protect the welder, but it also promotes higher heat transfer and a more consistent weld.

Helium-ion microscopes allow scientists to explore in much greater detail than traditional scanning electron microscopes because of their naturally higher resolution.

Computer hard drives featuring dramatically improved storage capacities are also reliant on helium.

Helium-filled hard drives are starting to replace air-filled hard drives, primarily because they offer 50% higher storage capacity with 23% lower operating power.

Another prevalent use of helium comes in the production of semiconductor chips. Literally, if a device contains a chip, it wouldn’t be possible without the helium used at different stages in the production process.

High-speed internet service relies on fiber-optic cables manufactured in a pure helium atmosphere to ensure air bubbles don’t get in the way of your scrolling.

It’s also critical for the magnets that let MRI machines operate.

Those super-powerful magnets have to be cooled in order to do their jobs of providing extremely detailed images of internal body structures consistently and accurately.

And with its extremely low boiling point, helium gas is the first choice of hospitals to perform that crucial task.

But that’s not the only place helium plays a critical role in our healthcare system. It’s also part of an effective treatment for respiratory ailments like asthma and emphysema.

And those are just the uses we’ve got for it today.

There’s one more use that could send humanity to the next level and literally help us harness the power of the sun.

Helium-3

You see, there’s a helium isotope known as helion or helium-3. It’s a light, stable isotope made up of two protons and one neutron.

Other than protium (ordinary hydrogen), helion is the only stable isotope of any element with more protons than neutrons.

And it’s long been proposed as the perfect fuel for fusion reactions (the energy that powers the sun).

Fusion reactions occur when two light isotopes combine to form a heavier one while releasing energy in the process.

And helium-3 is the only isotope in existence whose fusion releases large amounts of energy without causing the surrounding material to become radioactive.

That makes it the ideal fuel candidate for the still-to-be-perfected fusion reactors.

The Home of Helium

And the United States happens to be the home of nearly 75% of helium production in the world.

Most of that takes place in Amarillo, Texas. But that site is up for sale. And once the transaction is complete, the U.S. will be out of the helium game.

And we’ll have to rely on countries like Russia to keep us flush with it for all those things we already use it for PLUS our fusion reactors too.

Or we could rely on unstable regions like Qatar and Algeria. Both will be about as reliable.

So, with the U.S. government getting out of the helium business…

And with so many critical uses for helium…

And with helium potentially being the fuel that will power humanity into the future…

It’s become critical for the private industry to step in and provide a reliable, domestic source for the helium we’re so reliant on.

The Helium Highway

Fortunately for us, an experienced group of engineers, investors, and geologists have been watching this situation develop for the past few years.

And thanks to their background in the oil and gas extraction industry, they had the perfect skill set to explore for and develop helium extraction operations.

You see, they’ve been working in the oil and gas industry for collective decades. And during that time, they’ve come across a whole lot of helium.

But the thing is, helium was mostly ignored when it was found in nature the past few decades.

The U.S. had a ton of it and sold it below market price. So there really wasn’t an opportunity for helium producers to make a buck.

That is, there wasn’t until now…

Because the U.S. government has made the decision to divest itself of all that helium it had stockpiled.

And that’s creating a void in the market that’s leading to global shortages of the gas.

But this team, while they were looking for oil and gas, made notes about where and when they’d uncovered the helium.

So they’ve now got a map of sites all but guaranteed to be chock-full of helium ready for extraction and sale around the world.

And every single one of those sites resides in an area known as the “Helium Highway” or “Helium Sandbox,” stretching from western Canada down to the U.S./Mexico border in the southwest.

I’ve put together a whole report on the opportunity this company presents to investors.

I highly suggest you give it a read BEFORE the industry explodes with profits.

To your wealth,
