Automobiles: End of the road? A possible future for transportation.

This talk will discuss energy resources, options for portable fuels for transportation needs, and requirements and limitations of a practical automobile powered by electricity. Battery development is a significant obstacle--nature does not always give us what we want. A new model for transportation will be proposed that uses the electric cars we already have to solve our transportation issues--without having to wait for a breakthrough in battery chemistry.

Refreshments will be served in CP 179 at 3:15 PM
