Paging Dr. Inkjet

The space program gave us Tang, an orange juice substitute of dubious palatability. Inkjet technology may provide a better spinoff, offering a way to mend broken bones.

Who says dubious?!

As a Boy Scout in the 60's and 70's, I grew up with Tang on camping trips - it was the first "non Kool-Aid" powdered drink mix.

It's an acquired taste for the sophisticated palate.

Wow, simply wow

This is one of the most interesting things I've read in a while. Everything from the use of an "outdated" technology to the idea of regrowing cells, to the survivability of these cells when exposed to high g forces is astounding. If this can be used effectively, it would be a great medical breakthrough. I wish the article went a little more deeply into testing cell growth. What are the limits of the concept? Will we be able to stimulate regrowth of whole organs?

I know they are going more in the vat grown organs then they are trying to re-grow existing ones. So far they have grown skin for burn victims as well as the world's smallest leather coat. I think it far easier to cultivate something new than to heal something damaged.
