A successful experiment on the International Space Station in September led to a bioprinter producing fish, rabbit, and beef.

Cosmonaut Oleg Skripochka manned the 3-D printer that used magnetic fields in microgravity to print meat for the first time.

Bioprinting Solutions, founded by Invitro of Russia, was the laboratory that created the bioprinter. The cells were provided by Israeli and US food-tech companies and a U.S. company 3-D printer launched to the station in July can manufacture human tissue.
