The new StoreDot batteries promise to charge electric cars in 5 minutes

Let us not kid ourselves, we listen to new, groundbreaking solutions in the field of batteries several times a year on average, but despite the enormous commitment of human and financial resources, we have not lived to see a revolution so far. This is especially troublesome in the case of electric cars, which do not charge as easily as smartphones. This time, however, something may be up, because the Israeli startup StoreDot has announced plans to commercialize its batteries, which reflect some energy densities in favor of fast charging, and their wide availability in electric cars should be expected in the next 5 years.

Elon Musk offers $ 100 million for technology to reduce CO2 levels in the atmosphere

Musk has assets currently valued at $ 200 billion. Of course, practically the entire amount is invested in many companies and projects, but the head of SpaceX has a lot of blackheads, amounting to at least $ 100 million, which he will gladly invest in technologies that will help our planet breathe from human activity. Such an idea should come as no surprise, if we don't do anything about the climate, all Musk's projects will collapse before they are even created, because there will be no one to use them.

Until recently, space flights were available only to a select few, but thanks to private companies such as Virgin Galactic or SpaceX, we are on the threshold of space tourism, which can be used by every proverbial Kowalski, as long as he can afford it. Interestingly, today we hear news from both companies - the first of them has just announced its first civilian flight into space, which is scheduled to take place later this year, and the second informed about preparations for the next space flight attempt. We remind you that the previous one was held in mid-December, but unfortunately encountered some problems - luckily, the pilots were fine, but the goal was not achieved.

Australia plans the world's largest powerbank, Tesla is lagging behind

Australia has been experimenting with renewable energy for years and is doing great, but proper energy storage is essential for the efficient use of such forms. No wonder that it was there, and more specifically in South Australia, that Tesla built its 150-megawatt powerbank in 2018, and then announced plans to build another, even larger one, at the end of last year. We are talking about the Victorian Big Battery Megapack with a capacity of 300 MW and a capacity of 450 MWh, which is three times the size of the first project, because then we were talking about a power bank with a capacity of 100 megawatts and a capacity of 130 megawatt hours (it was only later expanded to 150 MW).
