Elementary (Posted on 2008-03-09) Difficulty: 2 of 5

Simple nearly beyond compare.

He is noble. He is rare.

He makes you squeak! Quiescent! Light!

Bright coloured things He brings to flight!

For all of that (so we are told)

He can be amazingly cold.

Who is He?

"He" is the chemical symbol for Helium.

Helium is the second simplest element.

Helium is a "rare" or "noble" gas.

When inhaled, helium leads to a high pitched voice.

Helium is stable and lighter than air. Two properties which make it the natural choice for filling balloons.

Helium can be supercooled down to a few millionths of one degree.
