Plants Will Grow In Lunar Soil - Florida Scientists Discover!


In a landmark first, Florida scientists have grown plants in lunar soil using samples collected during the Apollo missions to the moon!

The study could lay the foundation for growing plants that supply oxygen and food on the moon!

“Plants helped establish that the soil samples brought back from the moon did not harbor pathogens or other unknown components that would harm terrestrial life, but those plants were only dusted with the lunar regolith and were never actually grown in it,” said study coauthor Anna-Lisa Paul, research professor of horticultural sciences at the University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences.

So there is a way to go with this but how exciting to start this way!
