In one giant leap for Earth plants, seeds are grown in moon soil
Scientists for the first time have grown seeds in soil from the moon - samples retrieved during NASA missions in 1969 and 1972 - in an achievement that heralds the promise of using earthly plants to support human outposts on other worlds.
'Holy cow ... are you kidding me?' Scientists stunned to see plants grow in soil from the moon
Researchers had no idea if anything would sprout in harsh moon dirt and wanted to see if it could be used to grow food by the next generation of lunar explorers. The results stunned them.
