(Worthy News) – Researchers announced earlier this month that developed for the International Space Station could also be used to charge electric vehicles on earth in as little as five minutes, Business Insider reports.

In a government website statement, NASA said that its complex heat transfer technology, known as a “subcooled flow boiling” system, was recently discovered to be capable of delivering five times more power than electric vehicle chargers currently on the market. The system was originally developed to deliver fission power systems for missions to the Moon, Mars, and beyond.

“Using this new technology, dielectric (non-electrically conducting) liquid coolant is pumped through the charging cable, where it captures the heat generated by the current-carrying conductor,” NASA said. “Subcooled flow boiling allows … 4.6 times the current of the fastest available electric vehicle chargers on the market today by removing up to 24.22 kilowatts of heat,” NASA said.

“[The] charging cable can provide 2,400 amperes, which is far beyond the 1,400 amperes required to reduce the time required to charge an electric car to five minutes,” NASA reported.

Application of this new technology may remove major obstacles to the worldwide use of EVs, NASA said. key barriers to worldwide of electric vehicles. Current charging times for EVs range from under 20 minutes at public fast charging stations to hours or even days with home chargers.
