NASA’s sustainable aviation research division may have unlocked a game-changing breakthrough in battery technology. Their SABERS project is pioneering solid-state batteries, offering immense benefits over conventional lithium-ion ones. These innovative batteries boast exceptional safety, lightweight design, and astonishingly high energy storage capacity, potentially doubling or even tripling what lithium-ion batteries can hold.
With applications in aviation, where emissions are a concern and impressive energy output, SABERS is steering us toward a brighter, greener future. Collaborative efforts with Georgia Tech have further propelled this exciting endeavor.
