The meat cells sent to the International Space Station in the test tube were removed from the printer by Russian cosmonauts and turned into steaks. Experts say that this project, where the technology developed by an Israeli company, is being tested, proves that meat can be produced anywhere in the world.
Since December 2018, Aleph Farms, a company that produces meat in the laboratory, has taken the cows from the cows and put them in a test tube with a water that increases the nutritional value of the meat.
After a 400-kilometer journey, the cells reached the station and were converted into muscle tissue (meat) by Russian cosmonauts using a magnetic printer produced by the Russian company 3D Bioprinting Solutions.
The meat, which the Russian cosmonauts had not tried, was sent to Earth on 3 October. Meat testers say that the resulting product has a pleasant taste and has the same taste and consistency as traditional steaks.
Grigoriy Shalunov, project manager at 3D Bioprinting Solutions, told Business Insider, “This demonstrates the validity of our experiment concept.”
Shalunov said they hope to provide future sources of protein for future voyages and the first colonies on the Moon and Mars.
In 2015, lettuce was produced in an artificial environment at the International Space Station.
The American Aeronautics and Space Administration NASA is working on a project to create a space garden to produce lettuce, strawberries, carrots and potatoes at a space station orbiting the Moon.
