Dr. Shirley Meng's Lab Group Develops New Chemistry for Batteries to run in Colder Temperatures

Dr. Shirley Meng's Lab Group has developed a new chemistry that enables batteries to run in much cooler conditions that today's batteries. Today's batteries stop working at -20 degrees Celsius while Dr. Meng's group's was able to get their batteries working at -60 degrees Celsius. This development will allow vehicles and electric cars to run in the extreme cold and also help aid high atmosphere balloons and even spacecraft!
