AP Photos: Editor selections from the past week in Asia

Protesters shouted “Wearing mask is not a crime” at Hong Kong demonstrations after the territory’s leader Carrie Lam banned face coverings at such rallies in a hardening of the government’s stance four months into the movement. In other images from the Asia-Pacific region this week, Akira Yoshino smiles after he and two other scientists were […]

Polish, Austrian authors win Nobel literature prizes

By DAVID KEYTON and JILL LAWLESS STOCKHOLM — Polish novelist Olga Tokarczuk and Austrian author Peter Handke — two writers whose works are deeply intertwined in Europe’s religious, ethnic and social fault lines — won the 2018 and 2019 Nobel Prizes for literature on Thursday. The rare double announcement came after no literature prize was awarded last year due to sex abuse allegations that tarnished the Swedish Academy, the group that awards the literature prize. Both winners will receive a full ...

Creators of modern rechargeable batteries share Nobel prize

If you had to slip a couple AAs into your smartphone every morning to check your email, browse Instagram, and text your friends, chances are the mobile revolution would not have been quite so revolutionary. Fortunately the rechargeable lithium-ion battery was invented — a decades-long task for which three men have just been awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry. The prize this year honors M. Stanley Whittingham, John Goodenough, and Akira Yoshino, all of whom contributed to the development of wha...

Lithium-Ion Batteries Win Nobel Prize for Chemistry

"This is a highly charged story," began Olof Ramstrom, a member of the Nobel Committee for Chemistry, announcing that a trio of chemists who spent decades developing the lithium ion battery were today awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for their work. From a report: These batteries, small and powerful compared to older battery technology, made possible pocket-sized mobile phones, laptop computers, electric cars, and renewable energy devices such as solar panels that can help address the proble...

Autonomous Cars Need More Durable Batteries, Says Lithium-Ion Pioneer

Across the industry, automakers are working to increase the energy density of their batteries so EVs can travel 200 miles or more on a single charge. This is all well and good, but future batteries will also need to be tougher to meet the demands of autonomous ridesharing cars, says Akira Yoshino, who invented a prototype of the lithium-ion battery back in 1985. “A car shared by 10 people means it will be running 10 times more,” Yoshino told Bloomberg. “Durability will become very important.” Yo...
