When US astronauts next touch down on the Moon, expect them to walk almost as they do on Earth, thanks to a new generation of spacesuits offering key advantages over those of the Apollo-era.In pic: A space suit is seen during a press conference displaying the next generation of space suits as parts of the Artemis program in Washington, DC.
NASA has unveiled two next generation spacesuits for its Artemis program as the space agency prepares to send astronauts to the moon by 2024. One of the spacesuits is called the Exploration Exravehicular Mobility Unit, or "xEMU" for short, for exploring the surface of the Moon's South Pole.

Three researchers won the Nobel Chemistry Prize on Wednesday for the development of lithium-ion batteries, paving the way for smartphones and a fossil fuel-free society.John Goodenough (in pic) of the United States — at 97 the oldest person to be awarded a Nobel prize — Britain's Stanley Whittingham, and Japan's Akira Yoshino will share the nine million Swedish kronor (about $914,000 or 833,000 euros) prize equally, the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences said."This lightweight, rechargeable and powerful battery is now used in everything from mobile phones to laptops and electric vehicles... (and) can also store significant amounts of energy from solar and wind power, making possible a fossil fuel-free society," the jury said."Lithium batteries have revolutionised our lives since they first entered the market in 1991," and were "of the greatest benefit to humankind".
