KFC Introduces the Future of “Chicken”?
From video games to rockets, the world of technology has brought us all sorts of goodies. The 3D printer allows us to create almost anything with a few button punches. These contraptions seem to do magic, and now Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) wants to try it out. The fast-food chain has decided to use 3D printing to create a new version of its chicken nuggets.
KFC said, “The project aims to create the world’s first laboratory-produced chicken nuggets.” It looks like scientists may soon print our meals, instead of farmers growing food. The restaurant said that, as much as possible, the nuggets will taste and look like its normal chicken nuggets.
A company will create the “chicken” using plant-based material and chicken cells.

Vaccine Tests Under Way
There has been a lot of talk since the Coronavirus pandemic started of a vaccine to fight the virus. Will a vaccine be found, and if so, will it work safely? Some countries have passed laws forcing people to get a vaccine if one is made – what will the U.S. do?
Moderna is not the only company racing to find a cure. The government program Operation Warp Speed is helping companies look for a vaccine. Around $955 million has been spent on Moderna’s testing so far.
