‘Frankenstein’ meat grown in a petri dish in the room for the first time

Lab-grown meat, has been made in the area, in an experiment that is truly out of this world.

Israeli and Russian scientists have cultured small pieces of meat from stem cells, while on board the International Space Station 248 miles) above the earth’s surface.

The cow, the cells are harvested and returned to the planet and beamed to the station, where they were reared in the muscle tissue with the help of a 3D printer.


Performed by the Aleph Farms is a food company that grows farmed beef, and the experiment was conducted on the 26th of September, in the Russian segment of the international space station.

The researchers say that the project has been carried out in order to demonstrate that lab-grown meat could be grown in harsh conditions with minimal resources.

The technique, which they have been developed by the Russian company 3D Intro with Solutions that can be used to get astronauts to the space burgers in the future.

“We have to prove that the cultured meat is produced, it can be anywhere, anytime, in any situation,” said Aleph, Farms, boss, Didier Toubia.

“We have the potential to lead to a robust solution for the production of food closer to the people who need it, at the exact right time it is needed.

With the growth of the meat from the cow’s cells, the scientists did, in the natural process of muscle-cell regeneration is taking place within the cow’s body.

It requires the use of a special gadget known as a 3D-bioprinter, which will stick to each other in a living cell is something that looks like a real fabric.

The Lab-grown, or “slaughter-free meat looks and tastes like the real thing, but which is produced without killing the animals on the farm.

It is more likely to be labeled “Suck” the meat, as it is created by using the cells of other organisms.

The meat alternative is being touted as a cure-all for the looming food crisis and fight climate change.

As many as 96% of the agricultural emission of the greenhouse gas emissions can be cut by switching to fake meat, and a further step in the direction of addressing global warming.

Some of them add that to the fact that it can be grown on-board the small ISS, and shows a little of land, water, and other resources that will be needed to make the stuff.

“In the area, we don’t have to be 10,000 or 15,000 litres of water to produce 1 kg of beef,” he said.

“The joint experiment is an important first step in the direction of achieving our vision to ensure food security for future generations, while conserving our natural resources.”
