Australian scientists working on project to grow plants on the moon


Scientists from Australia are working on a project where they can grow plants on the Moon by the year 2025. According to Plant Biologist Brett Williams from the Queensland University, the seeds would be carried by the Beresheet 2 spacecraft- a private Israeli Moon mission.
They would be watered inside the sealed chamber after landing and later monitored for signs of growth and germination. Only those plants like Australian ”resurrection grass” that can survive without water in a dormant state will be chosen.

This project is seen as a step towards growing plants for food, medicine and oxygen production as they are crucial to establish human life on the moon. This project is run by the Lunaria One organisation and involves scientists from Australia and Israel.
