NASA Is Trying To Grow Human Organs In Space

NASA’s latest project? 3D-printing human organs in space.

You heard right – NASA has teamed up with researchers from the Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine to grow human liver tissue, using 3D-printing techniques. The research will soon be tested on the International Space Station.

The experiments could one day make organ transplants more viable by ‘growing’ organs in a lab.

What are your feelings on growing human organ tissue in a lab? Are there any ethical concerns? Do you think it’s possible?
