The first step towards farming on the moon

This research is the first step towards farming for food and oxygen on the moon.

In this research published in the journal Communications Biology, scientists told that plants can grow not only in the soil of the earth, but also in the soil that came from space. In this study, the scientists also examined the biological response of plants to the lunar regolith. This is the first step towards farming for food and oxygen on the moon.

plants in such soil

The Arabidopsis plant has been grown in research.

Professor Anna-Lisa Paul of the University of Florida told that even before this experiment, efforts have been made to grow plants in the soil of the moon. However, then only the soil of the moon was sprinkled on those plants. In recent research, the plant has been fully grown in the soil of the moon.

Researchers used 4 plates to grow the plants. In these, such nutrients were mixed with water which could not be found in the soil of the moon. After this the seeds of Arabidopsis plant were added to this solution. Within a few days, these seeds took the form of a small plant.

Only 12 grams of soil used

The 6 astronauts of NASA's Apollo mission returned from the moon to Earth with 382 kg of stones.

The 6 astronauts of NASA’s Apollo mission returned from the moon to Earth with 382 kg of stones. These stones were distributed among scientists. According to Professor Robert Ferry of the University of Florida, after applying 3 times in 11 years, he got 12 grams of soil from NASA. It was very difficult to work with so much soil, but eventually he managed to grow plants. This soil was collected during the Apollo 11, 12 and 17 missions.
