Elon Musk SpaceX Artificial Cultured Meat Steak ISS
Let’s face it, typical space food just is not very appetizing, or at least for long periods. Israel-based Aleph Farms’ aims to change that with their artificial cultured meat. Their production method of cultivated beef steaks basically relies upon mimicking a natural process of muscle-tissue regeneration occurring inside the cow’s body, but under controlled conditions. Samples are set to be launched with the Axiom Mission 1 aboard a SpaceX Crew Dragon spacecraft on April 6th from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

Axion Mission 1’s crew consists of former NASA astronaut Michael López-Alegría, US real estate entrepreneur Larry Connor, Canadian businessman Mark Pathy and Israeli philanthropist Eytan Stibbe. Back in 2019, Aleph Farms successfully assembled a small-scale muscle tissue in a 3D bioprinter developed by 3D Bioprinting Solutions, under micro-gravity conditions, and hopes that their research will serve as an essential growth indicator of sustainable food production methods that don’t exacerbate land waste, water waste, or pollution.

This joint experiment marks a significant first step toward achieving our vision to ensure food security for generations to come, while preserving our natural resources. This keystone of human achievement in space follows Yuri Gagarin’s success of becoming the first man to journey into outer space, and Neil Armstrong’s 50th anniversary this year, celebrating the moment when the first man walked on space,” said Didier Toubia, Co-Founder and CEO of Aleph Farms.
