Three things to love about batteries

They’re versatile One of my favorite things about battery technology is its adaptability. Researchers are finding and developing new chemistries all the time, and it’s fascinating to follow.  Lithium-ion batteries tend to be the default for the industries I typically write about (think transportation and energy storage). That’s mostly because these batteries were developed for personal devices that became widespread beginning in the 1990s, so they’ve had a head start on scaling and the cost cuts that come along with…

A new satellite will use Google’s AI to map methane leaks from space

Once in orbit, MethaneSAT’s software and spectrometers, which measure different wavelengths of light to detect methane, will pinpoint both concentrated locations for methane plumes as well as the broader areas where the gases diffuse and spread. It will also use Google’s image detection algorithms to create the first comprehensive, global map of the oil and gas industry’s infrastructure, like pump jacks and storage tanks, where leaks most commonly occur.  “Once those maps are lined up, we expect people will be able to…

How sulfur could be a surprise ingredient in cheaper, better batteries

Lyten has made progress in stretching the lifetime of its batteries, recently seeing some samples reach as high as 300 cycles, Mickolajczak says. She attributes the success to Lyten’s 3D graphene material, which helps prevent unwanted side reactions and boost the cell’s energy density. The company is also looking to use 3D graphene, a more complicated structure than the two-dimensional variety, in other products like sensors and composites.   Even with recent progress, Lyten is still far from producing batteries that can…

Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League review – a blockbuster that falls a bit short

When I first saw the trailer for Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, I was really excited as the game’s concept looks nothing less than a blockbuster formula. With Rocksteady Studios, which has previously delivered gold in the form of the Arkham series, at the helm and some of the most popular superheroes of the modern era, what could go wrong, right? Well… sometimes, even the best chef can’t make a good dish if the recipe isn’t right, despite having perfect ingredients. Before I dive deep and explain more, I would…
