Industrial batteries boring? Not to an astronaut

from Material Handling & Logistics

I never thought material handling and logistics were rocket science until I met an astronaut. I didn't have to go far to do that. He was in the same room I was recently, listening to a presentation on batteries for industrial vehicles. It was at HK Systems' — I mean, Dematic's — Material Handling & Logistics Conference held in Park City, Utah, that I met Jerry Linenger. He was the lone American on a five-month mission aboard the Russian Space Station Mir in 1997. It was bad enough being away from his wife and family all that time, but a fire aboard the space station required him to not only think strategically, but also to think about the prospect that he might never see his family again. more
