The world’s first “test-tube” meat, a hamburger made from a cow’s stem cells, will be produced this fall, Dutch scientist Mark Post told a major science conference on Sunday.
Post’s aim is to invent an efficient way to produce skeletal muscle tissue in a laboratory that exactly mimics meat, and eventually replace the entire meat-animal industry.
The ingredients for his first burger are “still in a laboratory phase,” he said, but by fall “we have committed ourselves to make a couple of thousand of small tissues, and then assemble them into a hamburger.”

Thinking about it turns my stomach. I don't see how something like this could ever catch on in a big way. It's interesting in that they're able to grow muscle tissue from stem cells, seems like there could be positive medical implications there. But I couldn't possibly imagine myself ever chowing down on a synthetic meat burger.
