ABSTRACT
After more than a decade of use as an energy source in space vehicles, nickel-hydrogen batteries are ready to come down to earthly uses in photovoltaic arrays, battery-powered vehicles, and a broad range of other applications. Scientists have been developing the battery for terrestrial use since the early '80s, and if they're successful in reducing the cost of assembly, the batteries may soon find commercial applications.
