#142 Donald Sadoway (Highlight) - How To Invent Inventors

Donald Sadoway is a legendary Professor in chemistry at MIT. He is also the scientist and inventor of a steelmaking process emitting no CO2, and new batteries for grid-scale storage, and electric cars.


In this episode we cover:

Donald’s passion for teaching at MIT, and why his course became so popular.

How you can learn and master a complicated subject like chemistry.

Inventing The Liquid Metal Battery, and how Ambri can change the world’s grid.

And why you should bet on youth, and anti-experts to solve hard and big problems.
