Next-Gen 3D 'Sponge' Battery Could Recharge in Minutes, Retain Energy for Days We like to boast about how ‘smart’ our mobile devices and computers have become – but why are we still powering them with dumb batteries? Amy Prieto, a chemistry professor at Colorado State University, started a company that is created a three-dimensional battery with a core of copper foam. Although it’s still in the very beginning stages of development, this incredibly smart technology could lead to batteries that contain two times more energy and charge in five minutes flat. Although modern rechargeable batteries make smartphones and GPS possible, they’re still extremely expensive, lose their charge in short order and come loaded with planet-killing toxins. Prieto thinks it’s inexcusable that while our devices have become more sophisticated, our batteries have remained virtually the same for over one hundred years. The conventional battery surface is two-dimensional, which limits the direction and speed at which energy can flow. + Prieto Battery Via Marketplace

American Transportation statistics - How United States ranks Definitions Airports > With paved runways > 1,524 to 2,437 m: This entry is derived from Transport > Airports > With paved runways, which gives the total number of airports with paved runways (concrete or asphalt surfaces) by length. For airports with more than one runway, only the longest runway is included according to the following five groups - (1) over 3,047 m (over 10,000 ft), (2) 2,438 to 3,047 m (8,000 to 10,000 ft), (3) 1,524 to 2,437 m (5,000 to 8,000 ft), (4) 914 to 1,523 m (3,000 to 5,000 ft), and (5) under 914 m (under 3,000 ft). Only airports with usable runways are included in this listing. Citation "United States Transport Stats", NationMaster. "United States Transport Stats, NationMaster." 1960-2013.
