To reach our global goal of being net zero carbon emissions by 2050, we must solve one problem – energy storage. Thank you to Toyota for lending us the #Mirai and for sponsoring this series. Scientists, researchers, and engineers are working to develop innovative ways of addressing the intermittency of wind and solar energy. I

Physics Girl is on Patreon! ►► https://www.patreon.com/physicsgirl There’s a factory in Europe that makes antimatter! It’s the rarest, most expensive, and potentially the most dangerous material on earth. Scientists don’t know why this material is so rare. Anti-atoms took 72 years after we discovered antimatter to make. Why? Thanks to CERN, Elise Wursten, Loïc Bommersbach
