    As the world becomes more electrified, the race is on to build cheaper, longer-lasting, more energy-dense batteries. One of the most promising technologies in this space is the solid state battery, developed by an absolute legend in the battery world, one of the inventors of the lithium ion battery and recent Nobel Prize winner John B. Goodenough.

    DID you maybe forget to mention that JD Goodenough wouldn't have got anywhere without the discoveries of Nikolai Tesla? ... I guess the edgy comments using puns with Goodenough's name get all the likes on this channel... ewww, if science is socially cool and edgy then it's valid

    I really don't understand why this video has so many downvotes. It's only about 5% of the total, but I really don't understand why people would be against the idea of solid state batteries, unless they are anti-renewable trolls.

    At 3:40 you claim that "Lithium-Ion Batteries made Cellphones possible, Laptops, Digital Cameras, and basically whatever you're watching this on"....
    My computer is not battery operated.
    Do you actually go through and edit your videos and/or create and edit a script to make sure your Video Content contains accurate information?
    I guess not, maybe you are just more worried about rapidly pumping out content in order to make USclip Income instead.
    It seems like literally every video you make contains inaccurate information in some form or another, unfortunately.

    You didn't talk about the cost. These batteries would be prohibitively expensive, impeding its adoption for possibly decades or even longer.

    Only problem is goodenough is up there in age. If he makes a break though, then big oil is going to remove him from the equation and we won't be able to tell because it would look natural, then wash all that work down the drain. Just like they did with the guy who made the car powered by water, or the lady who made a generator that used ion transfer to generate electricity.

    Battery is a multiple of cells. A glass dielectric for a capacitor would be good for stability and high voltages such as a crt but without going into huge dimensions it would not store that many joules. The ancient people may well have discovered the electro chemical properties to make a cell you can create one by sticking a galvanized nail and a copper wire into an orange now just gang them up to make a battery.

    the Bahgdad battery only produced 1 or 2 volts , and they would have had to string a lot of them together to get any useable voltage .................just like our double A and tripple A batteries we use today , your car battery is 6 2 volt cells to make up 12 volts , funny that hey , nothing new under the sun

    Joe also you did forget something on the nero spine stimulator I'm surprised you even mention it most people I talk to dont know about it.. but it can be used for pain I got mine when I was 18 years old.. I'm young but I've had 4 spine surgeries and I'm crippled due to the pain I'll keep this short but I would love to go further into the tech even tho I doubt that would happen but i would say the tech helps my days be more bearable anyway good video I was surprised and happy to see you know about the stimulator keep up the good work

    The Opportunity Rover, on Mars, was only supposed to be able to function for 90 days. It exceeded expectations by 14 years, according to NASA. Never A Straight Answer said that Opportunity might still be running if Dust Storms didn't render the rover in-operational. Who knows if they are being truthful though. There is that one picture that looks like someone is cleaning its solar panels. Either way, the technology is there. We've had it for a long time now. Electric cars were invented at least a decade before the internal combustion motor powered cars., during the 1880s

    P.S. all those people who power their cars with electricity... many of them are using coal fired power Plants to do it. Lol. Environmental Fail.
    It would be more efficient to power the battery from the gas engine in your car then shut off the engine and run on the battery.
