China Says It Has Grown The First-Ever Plants On The Moon On Its Historic Mission To The Far Side
China says it has grown the first plants on the moon as part of its historic mission to the far side.
China landed its Chang'e 4 spacecraft on the moon's far side on January 3, becoming the first nation to do so.
It has now achieved another first: a seed successfully germinating while there.
Sprouts from cotton seeds have emerged from a lattice-like structure in a metal canister inside the lander, China said.
