LG Chem to supply batteries for NASA’s space suits

South Korea’s largest chemical company LG Chem will supply lithium-ion batteries for NASA’s spacesuits from the second half of the year. The contract with NASA marked the first such deal for a Korean company. LG Chem’s new battery’s lifespan is five times longer than conventional silver-zinc batteries that are used in military and aerospace industries.
