Tiny batteries that draw energy from radioactive isotopes could provide 50 years of power for micro-devices and electronics, its inventors say.

The battery is fuelled by the radioactive isotope nickel-63. "It might be possible to make really tiny microelectronic sensor systems that can be embedded in a building or even in the body," says Amil Lal, who developed the system with colleagues at Cornell University, New York.

Great !!! A radio-active micro-ship in our body. All we needs to have wonderfull live.

Yeah, we call that a RTG, radioisotope Thermal generator. They used that on probes like voyager.
