There Is Cotton Growing On The Moon

Cotton is growing on the moon.  China's space agency says seeds carried on a recent mission to the far side of the moon have started to sprout.  It's being hailed as a major step toward long-term space exploration.  The Chinese moon lander was carrying soil, along with cotton and potato seeds, yeast and fruit fly eggs.  Chinese scientists hope the sealed container can create a self-sustaining environment.
