In an attempt to experiment with the cultivation of terrestrial plants on the moon, cannabis seeds have grown to be the first form of life on the moon.

But the atmosphere on the moon is very difficult in the high temperatures during the day and very low at night, it means that the plants will not be able to live on the far side of the moon, so when the night of lunar, the temperature on the moon very very low, even for seeds Cotton, which is unbearable so that you can withstand and stay.

In the past, scientists have sought to plant plants in space, such as rice, but not in the moon, but in the International Space Station (ISS), located in a low Earth orbit, where there is an environment with a form of gravity.

The Chinese experience, along with the cotton seed, included both rapeseed, potatoes and arabidopsis, as well as fruit fly eggs and some yeast, to form a miniature and simple biosphere.

However, the growth of cotton seeds on the moon, although short, the results of the experiment will be very important, as the experiment was to find out whether the plants can grow on the moon where the environment is more harsh and without attraction.

"We have taken into account the future of life in space and learning from the experience of plant growth in an environment of almost zero attractiveness will allow us to lay the foundation for the creation of our space base," said Professor Liu Henglong, dean of the Faculty of Engineering at Chongqing University. Future ".

Plant growth, with an attractiveness of less than 17 percent of Earth's attractiveness, has significant implications.

It is expected that the experiment will be analyzed more extensively and more for more advanced future experiments benefiting from the results of the first Chinese experiment, the only one so far.

China is expected to launch a second mission to the moon this year (Zhang E5) and three other missions (Chang E 6, 7 and 8) in 2020.
