About the Lonnie Johnson Interview

Hey Reddit! I’ve worked at the U.S. Air Force Weapons Laboratory, the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, and the Strategic Air Command. Now I own my own laboratory, and I’m trying to solve the world’s energy problems.

I'm currently doing research and development on a solid state battery, and the Johnson Thermoelectric Energy Converter [JTEC]
(http://johnsonems.com/) - which converts heat directly to electricity with no moving mechanical parts.

I also sponsor several [Georgia FIRST]
(https://gafirst.org/) robotic teams at my facility through my non-profit - The Johnson STEM Activity Center.

A picture of me was posted to Reddit this week, and it made it to the front page. I'm brand new to Reddit, but I'm told that is pretty cool.

I'm here to answer your questions for the next few hours.

EDIT: Thank you all so much! I look forward to interacting with you all more in the future. Press on!
