Episode Description:

Host Lisa Van Pay visits the scientists and
engineers working to make the electric car the future reality of today. One
of the toughest parts is storing enough potential energy to get you where
you're going, and in this case, it's all about the battery. Graduate student
Katharine Stroukoff from the University of Texas-Austin explains how her
research may help build a better battery, while Mike Nawrot and Dan Lauber,
members of the MIT electric vehicle team, describe the advantages of their
fully electric Porsche 914. They also explain how they are working to
improve some of the problems associated with electric vehicles, such as
battery life and charge time.
