Let’s Begin…

The team at periodicvideos has created a TED-Ed Lesson for every element of the periodic table. This one is about helium, Donald Duck voices, and floating balloons.

The ancient Greeks called the Sun god, Helios. Scientists called helium, after Helios, because the element is formed in the Sun by nuclear fusion of two deuterium atoms.
