China Just Sprouted The First-Ever Plant on The Moon

Super Wolf Blood Moon Coming Jan. 20, Epic Eclipse To Last Over 1 Hour

It is the first time any biological matter has been grown on the celestial body. According to the BBC, the sprouts are part of an ongoing experiment to test photosynthesis and respiration. Some other seeds that reportedly sprouted include rapeseed and potato seeds.

The state-run China Daily said that was the first such form of cooperation since the 2011 USA law was enacted. The mission's architects say the experiments could help lay a foundation for one day establishing a lunar base.

Chinese scientists said they used these plants and silkworms because the plants will provide the silkworms with oxygen, while the silkworms will give them carbon dioxide and nutrients through their waste, The Telegraph has learned.

A team of scientists from the Chongqing University in southwest China sent a small biological payload aboard the probe, which landed on the lunar surface on January 3.

Ex-Nissan chairman Ghosn indicted by prosecutors on fresh charge

On Jan. 3, China became the first country to land a spacecraft on the far side of the moon.

The lead scientist for China's lunar project revealed on Tuesday that United States space scientists had asked permission to use China's Chang'e 4 spacecraft and relay satellite to help them plan an American mission to the far side of the moon.

The China National Space Administration announced on Friday that the Chang'e 4 mission was "a complete success" as all scientific equipment mounted on the lander and rover had functioned well and their data had been received by ground control. We could probably make some nice sweaters from moon-grown cotton.

Seeds have sprouted on the Moon for the first time - in a mini biosphere experiment on China's Chang'e-4 lander.

Google Assistant Interpreter Mode - Hands On at CES 2019
During its keynote at CES 2019 , the company said it is done integrating the Assistant into Google Maps for both Android and iOS. In a test with United for domestic flights, Google Assistant will soon be able to check USA -based travelers for their flights.

"It suggests that there might not be insurmountable problems for astronauts in future trying to grow their own crops on the moon in a controlled environment".

The journey took more than 20 days, and scientists at the China National Space Administration spent two months doing final checks before sending it into space.

Following that mission, China will launch Chang'e-6 to gather samples on the moon's south pole and bring them back to Earth, Wu said.

Harvesting food in space, ideally using locally extracted water, would mean astronauts could survive for far longer without returned to Earth for supplies.
