I briefly dated a lab-grown meat in the mid-1980s.

She was grown in a petri dish. Her friends called her Patty.

"A local diner or a big fast food chain is not going to take this if it's a whole lot more expensive than conventional meat. They're going to take it when it's close - or even better, when it's below the cost. And that's what we need to fight for," Tetrick said."

This guy lives in a fantasy world if he thinks diners or big fast food chains will buy lab meat if it's more expensive than regular meat.

Not to mention his proposed 'street vendors'.

if livestock wasnt so stupidly-subsidized, it'd be a metric farktonne more expensive than it is. and prices already climbing noticeably vs. supplychain/etc. issues.

why not subsidize stuff like this instead?

That just reminds me of 11/22/63 by Stephen King, and where the diner guy was getting his meat from... It was definitely cheaper.

Another solution in search of a problem.

Just like plant-based "meat," the people who eat meat aren't going to care, and the people who don't eat meat already have other choices.

Might have an application in the space program.

"consider a spherical cow..."

heck, I remember one (or more) of those 70s scifi writers mentioning about lab-grown mammary tissue, such that you could have milk in space.

/put all of your monies into lab-milk futures!

of course, with the ridiculous quantities of hormones and nutrients you need to grow this stuff, likely better off trading all that launch weight for delicious soylent paste.
