World’s First Lab-Grown Burger Unveiled

Timothy B. Smith

The 5-ounce “cultured beef” burger was constructed from 20,000 protein strands grown from cow stem cells. The strands were compiled over the weekend and removed from a deep freezer on Monday. It cost $325,000 to produce, and was financed entirely by Google co-founder Sergey Brin.

That’s one expensive burger.
