How exactly we’re going to feed all these hungry mouths is a problem scientists are looking at from every angle, including creating heat-resistant cows, vertical farms and lab-grown hamburgers. Researchers are now reporting an advance in a NASA-inspired field known as speed breeding which relies on intense lighting regimes to raise crops several times faster, and boost their health at the same time.
