Nobel Prize in Chemistry Space Station Support Lithium-ion Battery Oct. 10 17:43

As Lithium-ion batteries are small, light and durable, they are widely used in space development and have stayed at the International Space Station. Astronaut Takuya Onishi of the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency Ion batteries have raised the stage of space development. "

Lithium ion batteries are lightweight and have little deterioration, so they are often used in satellites and spacecraft that cannot be replaced once launched.

The Lithium-ion battery made in Japan is installed in the International Space Station. In addition to the power to operate the experimental equipment, the cooking utensils and toilets for meals, as well as life support equipment, are also powered by batteries.

Astronaut Takuya Onishi, who has stayed at the International Space Station, said, “All things such as toilets, cooking, and the lights in the station are covered by lithium-ion batteries. If we don't have it, we will die in space, so we are protecting the astronaut's life. "

Astronaut Onishi said, “Small and light weight is important for space development. Not only can satellites be miniaturized, but it can be loaded with many other experimental devices. It has become a standard, and there is no doubt that it has raised the stage of space development, and the Space Station will continue to produce new results, but thanks to the lithium-ion battery, it has become possible.
