With a production capacity of 10,000 metric tons, Believer says the facility will be the biggest of its type in the world.
«Cells are extracted from an animal’s tissue (in a process that doesn’t harm the animal at all) and mixed with a cocktail of nutrients, oxygen, and moisture. Inside large bioreactors, the mixture is kept at the same temperature cells would be at in an animal’s body. The cells divide, multiply, and mature, with any waste products being removed to keep the environment pure.»
While these results aren't surprising, it’s worth noting that the culture around work is different in the US than in the UK or Australia.

The car’s lithium iron phosphate battery has a 190-mile range, with 465 solar half-cells integrated on its roof, doors, fenders, and hood.
Space-based solar power involves building massive arrays of solar panels in orbit to collect sunlight then beaming the energy down to Earth.
The entire process happens below our consciousness, suppressing unwanted memories so that they never surface to awareness.
There's been an explosion of noise and hype about the metaverse. If you're new to the concept, this introduction is for you.
«It’s also a good reminder that anytime you see the media claim that something is “the first” virtual-based whatever, that’s very likely not true.»
The engineered bacteria are now resistant to even the most aggressive viruses, with little chance of leaking their synthetic code into the wild.
A new approach that combines biological and chemical processes could greatly simplify the process of recycling mixed plastics.
Estonia has digitized 99 percent of its public services and persistently achieves one of the highest ratings of trust in government in the EU.
How does Refind curate?
It’s a mix of human and algorithmic curation, following a number of steps:
- We monitor 10k+ sources and 1k+ thought leaders on hundreds of topics—publications, blogs, news sites, newsletters, Substack, Medium, Twitter, etc.
- In addition, our users save links from around the web using our Save buttons and our extensions.
- Our algorithm processes 100k+ new links every day and uses external signals to find the most relevant ones, focusing on timeless pieces.
- Our community of active users gets 5 links every day, tailored to their interests. They provide feedback via implicit and explicit signals: open, read, listen, share, add to reading list, save to «Made me smarter», «More/less like this», etc.
- Our algorithm uses these internal signals to refine the selection.
- In addition, we have expert curators who manually curate niche topics.
The result: lists of the best and most useful articles on hundreds of topics.
How does Refind detect «timeless» pieces?
We focus on pieces with long shelf-lives—not news. We determine «timelessness» via a number of metrics, for example, the consumption pattern of links over time.
How many sources does Refind monitor?
We monitor 10k+ content sources on hundreds of topics—publications, blogs, news sites, newsletters, Substack, Medium, Twitter, etc.
Can I submit a link?
Indirectly, by using Refind and saving links from outside (e.g., via our extensions).
How can I report a problem?
