we need people actively looking into making those new type of batteries instead of just researching them and never do anything with the research
You haven't been paying attention.
Like photovoltaic solar panels (which can now be had for under a dollar a watt WITHOUT subsidies, more than an order of magnitude improvement over the last decade or so), DEPLOYED battery technology has been improving, drastically.
Of course most of the breakthroughs don't get deployed. That's usually because better breakthroughs come along before they get that far.
Make that "yellow hot". Red might be a bit below the relevant material's curie point.
Cut it into quarters with a friggin' oxy torch. Jeez, the lack of votech training nowadays.
If you've got a torch, don't bother cutting it. Just heat it red hot.
Once it's over the curie temperature of the recording medium, all the stored magnetic fields go away.
The significance of this is Elon Musk, who is the self-driving Uber of dot.com billionaires and is the hero of our times.
Well, I knew Steve Jobs well enough, and have met a few civilian astronauts and a bunch of other rich people. None of the others seem to have done so much for the long-term future of the human race as Musk has in leading the path to more affordable spaceflight.
