(Wednesday, June 14, 2006) If you haven’t yet checked out the Science Channel’s How It’s Made series, you’re missing out. Sure, sometimes you get stuck learning about how gumballs or Play-Doh is made, but sometimes (like tonight) they cover some really cool stuff. Tonight’s episode — airing at 8 p.m. CDT — includes a segment on how Li-Ion batteries are made. We’re setting the TiVo now.
