Apparently steak is not a product destined only for the Earth: Aleph Farms and his partners managed to make meat in space for the first time.
The experiment, conducted aboard the Russian sector in the International Space Station (ISS), used a device from 3D Bioprinting Solutions to produce a 3D printed steak. The Aleph 3D Printed Meat Growth Technique replicates the muscle generation mechanisms of cow muscles, but under artificial conditions. The only variation in space is the fastest realization, because the mechanism literally 'prints' in 'double-sided', that is, it cultivates meat from two sides without suffering the limits of gravity.
There is still a lot to go for mass production. However, Yoav Reisler of Aleph Farms said the company plans to increase production of synthetic meat on land, using large-scale “bio farms”. These are plants that can greatly reduce costs and production times: you can consider them real "food printers". A type of factory that could become very common in the near future.
3D printed meat: perfect in space
This type of production could be particularly useful for astronauts. Spacecraft staff cannot afford the luxury of building farms: 'growing' 3D printed meat can be much more convenient and easier than eating special food. While waiting to affect the feasibility of space travel, however, Aleph Farms aims to reduce the impact of mankind on the environment. 'Cultured' meat (such as 'vegan') can bring down mass farms.
Less energy, less water, less land and obviously less emissions.
