Australia seeks to grow plants on moon by 2025

Published on

Australian scientists plan to try growing plants on the moon by 2025, in a mission unveiled Friday that aims to develop a colony on Earth’s natural satellite, according to AFP, Agerpres reads.

„This project is a first step towards cultivating plants for the production of food, medicine and oxygen, all of which are crucial for establishing human life on the Moon,” the researchers said in a statement.

In addition to the fact that it could lay the foundations for human life on the moon, this mission could also serve as a laboratory for identifying solutions to the problems associated with food security amid global warming, suggested Caitlin Byrt, a professor at the Australian National University. „If we can create a system to grow plants on the moon, then we can create a system to grow food in some of the harshest environments on Earth,” she said, quoted in a statement.
