The problem with it if I remember correctly is that it has no fat. it's just cultured cow muscle peices ground together. so it's super lean ground meat.

 

The cost thing: they had to build an entire lab of specialist equiptment and hire biotech experts to culture hundreds of dishes of cells taken from a cow and grown in a culture medium taken from hundreds of cows for months... just to make one patty.

 

If you built a farm to raise a cow to make a single patty it wouldn't be a cheap burger either.

 

Once it's a continuous process where a single system can create multiple bugers and with minimal feedstock can continue to turn them out they'll drop in price fast. and eventually it could drop below regular meats in price.

not for me

 

You mean as it is now?

 

Or you will never eat a lab-grown meat for the rest of your eternity?

 

1. I won't live for eternity and yes I will only eat that if I have no other option

'Your' eternity means 'for the rest of your life,' I think.

I was entertaining the possibility some of us may get indefinite lifespans due to rejuvenation therapies and ultimately consciousness transfer to a different substrate.

Ah, I see; I agree that will happen as well. Though I was also trying to level with Unknown somewhat since I'm fairly certain he doesn't believe aging will be cured this century.

Eventually, there  will be some work to replicate fat cells too. this is just a starter. as we become more familiar with the procedure, tissues will be improved.

Ouch... $330.000 for a patty. Kind of expensive lol

That's the kind of shit you'd expect from Mr. Krabs.

Aging is the result of perfectly tangible physical processes. I don't see any reason why those processes can't be analyzed, understood, and altered.

Even Aubrey de Grey emphasized we don't need to understand the precise mechanisms that give rise to aging - we just need to adopt an engineering approach to the problem by fixing the damage without interfering the aging process.

We already detected the causes of aging...they are pretty much well known..now we need experiments and pubblications. maybe one day we may have a matuzalem pill...but we need your help as voters..

your part is big...actully electors are fundamnetal on the war against aging.

I dont think longevity will take long to kick off. People might think that procedures to live longer are "unethical". But then people are going  to realize that they don't want to f***ing die!

Bump, so this can become a legitimate general news thread.
 

This startup is making real meatballs in a lab without killing a single animal

The promise of lab-grown meat — made from pieces of lab-grown muscle tissue instead of living animals — has dangled in front of us for decades. Now it's actually happening.
A Bay Area-based startup called Memphis Meats has figured out how to make a real meatball in the lab using beef cells, no livestock required. Take a look:

The $325,000 Lab-Grown Hamburger Now Costs Less Than $12

The artificial burger that you—or your science-fiction-loving friends—have been waiting for is real. And now it's cheap, too.
It wasn't long ago that test-tube hamburgers—meat made from small pieces of lab-grown animal muscle tissue—were just a glimmer in some mad scientist's eye. Then, in 2013, the dream of an artificial burger suddenly got interesting. That's when Mark Post, a researcher at Maastricht University in the Netherlands, announced that he had created a burger made from real meat grown in a lab (20,000 strips of muscle tissue, to be exact) for the unreasonable price of $325,000. Now that price has dropped to just over $11 for a burger ($80 per kilogram of meat), according to a recent ABC News interview with Post.

It's still not vegan because it is meet, regardless of where its from. I think what she really meant was, are you vegan for moral or apparent health reasons. If someones veganism is just a moral thing, not hurting animals, then sure its vegan, but I don't think that's really the proper usage of the word.

Words can't describe how happy this makes me. It's one of the techs I really want to live to see revolutionize the world as we know it and I could never have guessed it became so cheap in such little time.
