Our buddies at NASA have been working on a way to produce meat without having to raise animals. On a deep-space mission this would be a handy thing, but here on the home planet it would be a great thing too.
Papers published recently describe how industrial-scale tissue engineering could be the next big thing, possibly supplanting the raising of livestock for food.
With a single cell, you could theoretically produce the world’s annual meat supply. And you could do it in a way that’s better for the environment and human health. In the long term, this is a very feasible idea.
Interesting concept. I wonder if the PETA people would eat meat produced this way.
