Plants are growing on the far side of the moon. China's space agency showed photos of cotton seeds growing. It is part of a "moon surface micro-ecological circle". Cotton and potatoes are growing. They are both small and strong. They could grow in the difficult conditions on the moon.

Researchers want to understand how plants grow in space. His team is looking at our future survival in space. They could start a space base. Fruit flies and yeast are part of the project. The plants will make oxygen and food for the fruit flies; the yeast could change the dead plants into more food.
