Hundreds of years ago, cobalt gave Ming pottery its immutable blues. Today, the cobalt used in MRI machines is giving us a new window into the human body. But it’s in our phones and computers and in the batteries of our electric vehicles that cobalt is having its greatest impact on our everyday lives and the transition to a more sustainable world.
