Technology is growing at an incredible pace and not only limited to the products we use. Now we can eat also. Sounds weird right? But it’s true. Impossible Food is a company making it possible now. Previously they have released their first version of the burger. In which instead of using meat or beef they are using plants to give the same taste, smell, and protein which you get by eating meat.
In this updated version, they are able to achieve that same texture and juiciness which you find in meat by adding HEME which is the reason why meats are so juicy. This is really a big step for eliminating the use of animals for our food.

The good thing is that they don’t need to build new landing pads as it can easily land on 40 foot by 40-foot normal landing pads. Bell Aerospace has already produced helicopters like V-22 Osprey and others since the Second World War. They have also partnered with Safran, EPS, Thales, Moog and Garmin to build subsystems for the project. They said by 2023 they’ll start testing the aircraft flights.
