Researchers in the U.K. announced this week that they’ve found a way to turn radioactive diamonds into miniature batteries that last 5,000 years.img_20161202_200335_767

At a prestigious annual lecture event in Europe earlier this week, a team of physicists and chemists from the University of Bristol unveiled a nuclear-powered diamond battery, which runs off the radioactive energy salvaged from nuclear waste. The technique represents an entirely new kind of electrical generation system, according to the research team, which could solve multiple problems regarding clean energy, long-lasting batteries and nuclear waste disposal.
