Lead-acid car batteries have the potential to cause a whole host of environmental issues, but their continued use – which allows manufacturers to recycle the dangerous lead from one battery to another – keeps the pollutants out of the environment. As those batteries are retired in favor of newer, more efficient types (like lithium-ion batteries), however, we’ll stop having somewhere for all that lead to go. According to engineers at MIT, we can recycle them to make long-lasting, low-cost solar panels.

In the 19th century, astronomers believed that solar systems formed in nebular clouds throughout the universe. But 20th century scientists rejected that idea, arguing that our solar system was an aberration. This mistake derailed the search for exoplanets, and extraterrestrials, for decades.
Nature sure has a knack for interrupting astronomy.
Chemicals once found in hairspray may serve as signs of alien life on faraway worlds, researchers say.
