Fullerenes: An extraterrestrial carbon carrier phase for,

Measurements of He in a toluene residue from the continental KT boundary clay (KTB) at Raton Basin, Colorado, revealed a clear extraterrestrial helium signal with 3 He/ 4 He ratios ≈100× the air ratio in the highest temperature steps (1.3 × 10 −7 cm 3 /g of fullerene).Micrometeorites and extraterrestrial He in a,,Extraterrestrial helium (He et) in ferromanganese crusts from the deep oceans is presumed to originate in micrometeorites.The carrier phase of the He et has, so far, not been identified. To address this issue we have recovered and examined several metallic micrometeorites from crust 237KD from the deep Pacific Ocean, and have performed He isotope determinations on powdered samples of the crust.Absence of extraterrestrial ^3He in Permian–Triassic age,,Helium concentration and isotopic composition were measured in a suite of samples across the Permian–Triassic boundary at Opal Creek, Canada, to determine whether high extraterrestrial helium concentrations are associated with a possible extinction-inducing impact event at this time.

Helium concentration and isotopic composition were measured in a suite of samples across the Permian–Triassic boundary at Opal Creek, Canada, to determine whether high extraterrestrial helium concentrations are associated with a possible extinction-inducing impact event at this time.Extraterrestrial atmosphere - Wikipedia,The study of extraterrestrial atmospheres is an active field of research, both as an aspect of astronomy and to gain insight into Earth's atmosphere. In addition to Earth, many of the other astronomical objects in the Solar System have atmospheres.These include all the gas giants, as well as Mars, Venus, and Pluto.Several moons and other bodies also have atmospheres, as do comets and the Sun.Preservation of extraterrestrial 3He in 480-Ma-old marine,,Combination of the observed helium concentrations with sedimentation rates estimated from conodont biostratigraphy suggest that the flux of extraterrestrial 3He in the Early Ordovician was about 0.5 x 10(-12) cm3 STP cm-2 ka-1, ignoring potential post-deposition helium loss.

Oxygen is used by humans and other animals to burn fuel to run bodily processes. Helium does nothing, its electrons are held very tight by the atom and no chemical reaction can change that.

Returning platinum group metals to earth seems possibly promising. Lunar oxygen has potential but doesn't have many existing potential customers. Helium 3 is not promising any time soon. In General The potential uses for extraterrestrial resources expand greatly if you use them in situ.Preservation of extraterrestrial 3 He in 480-Ma-old marine,,We have measured the helium abundance and isotopic composition of a suite of Lower Ordovician marine limestones and associated fossil meteorites from Kinnekulle, Sweden.
