Battery Made From Diamond

A battery crafted from a new man-made diamond could last for more than 5,000 years, according to new research.

Scientists created the radioactive diamond batteries by converting nuclear waste.

The batteries would be ideal for powering equipment that needs to run reliably for a long time, including pacemakers, drones, satellites and spacecraft.

They say the breakthrough could simultaneously help to the solve the problems of nuclear waste, clean electricity generation and battery life, say the researchers.
