Tesla may soon have a battery that lasts a million miles

Last April, Tesla CEO Elon Musk boldly promised an electric car battery that could last for 1 million miles—more than double what drivers can expect today. At the time the claim seemed a bit overambitious, but now a paper from Dalhousie University shows he might be for real. It outlines a lithium-ion battery that “should be able to power an electric vehicle for over 1 million miles” while losing less than 10 percent of its energy capacity during its lifetime.

Greta Thunberg delivered a passionate speech at the UN today

Teen activist Greta Thunberg took her climate cause to the floor of the UN today, delivering a barn-burning speech to the powerful adults gathered for a climate summit. She followed that talk with action a few hours later, filing a lawsuit with 15 other kids arguing that carbon-polluting countries are violating the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, which states children have the right to life, health, and peace.

Fast Fact: 26,000 Feet

That’s the altitude bar-headed geese fly at as they migrate over the Himalayas, a feat that has left many wondering how the geese cope with so little oxygen. So physiologists at the University of Texas at Austin raised goose chicks by hand, and then trained them to fly in a wind tunnel wearing little face masks and backpacks to learn about the adaptations that allow them to withstand the harsh conditions.
