Forget about needing a harem of goddesses on Kolob. You could have been just as easily hatched and grown in lab and then sent to Earth.https://www.cnn.com/2019/10/08/health/aleph-farms-space-meat-intl-hnk-scli/index.html
Aleph Farms, an Israeli food company that engineers beef steaks from cow cells, announced Monday it had successfully grown meat on the International Space Station for the first time -- a step forward in the company's goal to create slaughter-free eco-friendly meat.
Here's how it works: researchers take cells from a cow, give them nutrients, and put them in an environment mimicking the inside of a cow's body. The cells then multiply and grow connective muscle tissue -- eventually becoming a full-sized steak.
Aleph Farms collaborated with a Russian bioprinting company to successfully carry out the process on September 26. They assembled "a small-scale muscle tissue in a 3D bioprinter developed by 3D Bioprinting Solutions, under micro-gravity conditions," Aleph Farms said in a press release.
