Test-Tube Chicken Challenge

Animal rights activists are offering scientists a $1 million reward if they can make commercially viable meat in a laboratory.

Leaders of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals say lab-grown meat could satisfy appetites without harming animals.

The reward would go to the first scientist to produce enough test-tube chicken to be sold in 10 U.S. states by June 30, 2012, at a price competitive with prevailing chicken prices.
