For the first time, the helium hydride ion HeH+ has been detected in space.
But within 100,000 years of the Big Bang, the very first molecule emerged, an improbable marriage of helium and hydrogen known as a helium hydride ion, or HeH+.
These include extreme ultraviolet (EUV) spectroscopy of the plasma produced by the catalysis process, characteristic emission from catalysis and the hydride ion products, lower-energy hydrogen emission, plasma formation, atomic hydrogen line broadening, inverted hydrogen lines, elevated electron temperature, anomalous plasma afterglow duration, power generation, and analysis of chemical compounds.
