A Titanic Emergency

As I write this, rescue crews are scouring the Atlantic for signs of The Titan, a 5-person submersible that’s built to explore depths far beyond where most watercraft can venture.

Including the infamous final resting place of The Titanic, which sits 12,500 ft below the surface of the ocean.

It’s not clear at this stage what’s happened to The Titan — it went AWOL 1 hour and 45 minutes into its 2-hour descent to the ocean floor.

The Titan is equipped with 96 hours-worth of oxygen.

And as those hours have ticked away the world has held its collective breath to see if a rescue will be possible. 

Along with many who are following the coverage, I’m doing my best to hold out hope that the crew will be able to survive.

Our dependence on oxygen, and the grim consequences when we don’t have enough of it, got me thinking about another breathable gas: helium.

Helium (mixed with oxygen and nitrogen, called “tri-mix”) is used by rescue divers to slow the effects of nitrogen buildup in the body.

Tri-mix is the one of the only ways to safely carry out deep operations outside of a vehicle.

And while it obviously can’t be used at the depths the Titan visited, experienced divers can use it to descend over 200 ft.

If the Titan is recovered, helium will doubtless be used at some point to help get the vehicle back to the surface.

It has other essential uses as well.

Helium is also a must-have material for MRI machines (one of the largest customers for helium, since they need liquid helium, which is 1,000 times the density of helium gas), which save the lives of 38 million people a year. 

Helium is also used in defense technologies, space technologies, science labs, and other high-tech uses that have immediate consequences for our health and safety.

And the reason our need for helium is so urgent: we’re running out of it.

It’s a non-renewable resource, with only a few producers, and demand is far outstripping supply.

We’ve been pounding the table about the growing helium crisis for several weeks now.

Our persistence is because time is running out — on July 1st we’re going to conclude our coverage of this opportunity. 

This new helium plant will be one of only a handful of upcoming projects in the entire world.

And this is the last moment to catch it before it begins production.

The moment its production commencement is announced, its stock will take off, and it’ll be too late to participate in the early gains. 

This company has already signed an agreement with a space exploration company — ensuring they've already got a customer lined up, and this is just the first of several wells that they're going to be bringing online.

As Nick said earlier this week:

“There’s a short window here to buy a position in this helium company before they start production... getting in ahead is the only way to secure those gains.”

You can watch Nick’s presentation that’ll show you why helium is so essential (and why it could make investors a fortune just a short time from now).

As for The Titan, and its crew, I continue to hope for a rescue.
