A Hamburger Made in a Lab is Called Schmeat
Its meat that was grown in a lab over a two-year period at a cost of $338,000 and it’s about to be cooked this month. Mark Post at Maastrict University in the Netherlands grew the meat he calls ‘Schmeat’ and will cook it on a grill soon to see how it tastes.
PETA, a supporter of ‘Schmeat’, have a contest going on until the end of the year, with a million dollar prize, for someone to develop a virtual chicken.
The ‘Schmeat’ will be cooked in London to show that making meat artificially can be done. But according to Post, it’s a long way away.
