Scientists trying to figure out how to synthetically create meat for space travel have come up with an innovative solution that uses air as one of its predominant ingredients.
Yes, the simple combination of microbes, air, water, and renewable energy is enough to create a synthetic meat alternative called Air Meat.CNN has reported some background to the idea that actually dates back over 50 years.
The process is similar to how yogurt and cheese ferment. But it doesn't rely on milk and sugar but rather on CO2 and nitrogen found in the air.
The great thing about this idea is that it's not just suitable for space travel. It could become a technology that reduces the need for animal meat and thereby hugely reduce the environmental impact of the food industry.
It's still in the early stages, and taste and texture will heavily influence the success, but these breakthroughs are a sign of great things to come.
