Xenon is a member of the so-called noble or "inert" gases. It is
present in the atmosphere to the extent of about on part in twenty million. Xenon is
present in the Martian atmosphere to the extent of .08 ppm. The element is found in
gases evolved from certain minerals springs, and is commercially obtained by extraction
from liquid air.
Metallic xenon has been produced using several hundred kilobars of pressure.
Xenon in a vacuum tube produces, a beautiful blue glow when excite by an electrical
discharge. Xenon is used in the atomic energy field in bubble chambers, probes, and
