First Plants to GROW on the Moon!

This is very COOL! For the 1st time EVER, scientists are growing plants on the moon! 

Chinese astronauts have successfully sprouted cotton plants inside a 'mini lunar biosphere' on the moon's surface.  It's the first time any plant has been grown on the moon, and could potentially be the first step towards a permanent moon base. 

The next phase of the experiment is to hatch silkworms, which will help the cotton plants to flourish.
