$332,000 stem cell hamburger to be tasted today

 

A Dutch scientist today will unveil the world’s first beef burger created by stem cells harvested from a living cow, moving a step closer toward offering a sustainable alternative to meat production.
The 5-ounce burger cost more than 250,000 euros ($332,000) to produce, with the research being funded by an anonymous individual, said the scientist, Mark Post of Maastricht University. Two volunteers have agreed to sample the steak, which will be fried in a pan at a tasting event in London today.
Post is among scientists including those at Modern Meadow and New Harvest who are experimenting with ways to grow meat in labs as an alternative to raising livestock, which contributes 18 percent of greenhouse gas emissions and uses 30 percent of the world’s ice-free land, according to an Oxford University study. Commercial production could begin in a decade or two, according to Post, whose work on cultured beef began in 2008.
“I hope it will show cultured beef has the answers to major problems that the world faces,” he said in a statement before the tasting event. “For it to succeed, it has to look, feel and hopefully taste like the real thing.”
The muscle stem cells, taken by harmless biopsy from living cows, are fed and nurtured so they multiply to create muscle tissue. The cells grow into strands, and 20,000 of them get combined to create one burger. One sample of cells is enough to create up to 20,000 tons of meat in the lab, he said.

Anonymous funder? Another article says it is one of the Google founders. Can't remember the name. Phone Post

That is great. Instead of slaughtering massive amounts of animals (quite cruel, savage and barbaric), this can be a great alternative.

Looking forward to this hitting the dollar menu when technology catches up in 74 years.
