“Lit: America’s Future” looks at the race to find the critical minerals like cobalt, lithium and nickel, which are essential for creating batteries that power today’s technology and cars. The special also examines whether we can make those batteries quick enough and how we can recycle them. From an exclusive look at what will be the first operating cobalt mine in the U.S. in decades located in the remote mountains in Idaho to sub-zero battery labs in Tennessee to the search for minerals 15,000 feet under the Pacific Ocean, the special profiles companies working on innovative solutions and ways to gather these resources while trying to minimize the impact to our environment.
