How Lithium became Nobel

Here is a Crazy (and Old) Engineer, who changed modern living.

Design News says: John Goodenough never wanted rock-star status.
But the self-effacing, 97-year-old engineering professor had little choice last week after getting the call that would vault him to worldwide prominence. During that call, he was told he had won the 2019 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for his co-development of lithium-ion batteries that have touched the lives of billions. In London at the time, Goodenough flew back to his home in Austin, TX, where he was met by a police detail.

From Battery Engineer to Nobel-Winning Rock Star

This is awesome and he is 97 and still working for a new battery!! Wow! thats called passion.
