The Impact of the Different Market Factors on Helium-3 Market in Upcoming! Forecast to 2025 | Space Race among Nations for Mining Helium-3 Proving Conducive Helium-3 (He3) is a light, stable isotope of helium with two protons and one neutron, which has the potential to be used as a fuel in future nuclear fusion power plants. Helium-3 has significant use in homeland security, national security, medicine, industry, and science. The demand for helium-3 has been rising, since the rise in the number of terrorist attacks across the world. After September 11, 2001, the Federal government of the United States started stationing neutron detectors at the U.S. border to help secure the country against smuggled nuclear and radiological material. The continuous deployment of detecting equipment has created a heavy demand for the helium-3 market.  Source: openPR.   The Impact of the Different Market Factors on Helium-3 Market in Upcoming!

How a quantum key can lead to really secure communications | Working alongside Southampton University spin-off company Lumenisity Limited, BT kicked off trials of a new type of optical fibre – Nested Anti-Resonant Nodeless Fibre hollow core fibre – at its labs in Ipswich over the summer.
