Helium from Airship

United States of America

0001904 and 0001921

Before the discovery of this object, Helium was known only from ancient myth. It was an invisible magical substance used to see inside the body, detect the smallest things in the universe and harness energy from nuclear fission. Though finite, the ancients dedicated their precious Helium to flying ships and to the sacred ritual of Party Balloon.
