King participates in CMI Google+ Hangout

The Ames Laboratory Director was one of four participants in a DOE Energylive Google+ Hangout that helped introduce and explain the new Critical Materials Institute. In addition to Alex King, who will serve as CMI Director, the Hangout included David Sandalow, DOE Assistant Secretary for Policy and International Affairs; Steve Duclos, Chief Scientist at GE Global Research; and Dan Leistikow, DOE Public Affairs.

The panel fielded questions from viewers via social media and email, explaining what critical materials are, how and where they're used, and how the CMI will help address development of a secure supply of these materials for the future. To view the entire Hangout, click on the video below.
