Sulfur battery breakthrough could power electric planes, trains, and automobiles

We really need this break through to make the leap from fossil fuels to Electric. Of course, going electric is going to raise its own set of issues, but hopefully they are less damaging than fossil fuels are now

scientists at Berkeley Lab also devised a method of replacing sulfur with seaweed, which they claim will be able to give the batteries and even longer lifespan.

Does anyone know, what properties does seaweed have that make it a candidate for battery use? This is kind of fascinating to me

The SEM image revealed that morphology of red seaweed consists of 20–30% solid material (endofibre), which consists of small, regular and hollow fibre. These characteristics enable the pulp to absorb and retain the wettability of electrolyte and contribute high ion conductivity of battery.

sounds fine but I don’t want to be near an

That’s great, but wait until they come out with black hole energy generators. Obviously not meant for cars or mobile things but IIRC one as big as a mountain (like mt everest) can power the earth…
