Look around in any public place and the sight is ubiquitous: people staring intently at little screens, hunched over their portable electronic devices. Materials scientist John B. Goodenough has had a starring role in that scene: he invented the rechargeable lithium-ion battery that allows us to tote these pocket-sized devices around without carrying power cables or stacks of AA batteries. And at the age of 95, he’s not done yet -- he still works full time, writing, teaching, and searching for the next great advance in battery technology. http://bit.ly/2pyKgHP John B. Goodenough is the winner of The Franklin Institute’s 2018 Benjamin Franklin Medal in Chemistry. http://bit.ly/2pyKgHP
