In the apparatus are the seeds of other plants, but they have not yet ascended.
The Chinese lunar probe, Chang’e-4, conducted a biological experiment on the moon and sent pictures of tiny cotton shoots. Mankind for the first time managed to grow a plant on any celestial body besides the Earth. This was reported by Xinhua.
For the experiments, six biological species were placed on the probe , including cotton, rapeseed, potatoes, Tal’s rezuhofidka, yeast, and Drosophila fly larvae. They are in the same container and, according to the idea of scientists, should form a closed ecosystem
Chang’e-4 was launched on December 8th. The main objective of the probe, consisting of an automatic landing module and a lunar rover, is to study the reverse side of the moon. The probe will examine the environment, the surface and the ground. In addition, he will conduct a series of low-frequency radio astronomy observations.
