Project leader Liu Hanlong says the cotton seeds the first to sprout. He said the plants were because they were small, strong and could in the difficult conditions on the moon's surface.

Professor Hanlong said the project's aim was to more about how plants outside of Earth. The long-term aim is to plants that can grow on the moon or on planets like Mars. The professor said: "We have consideration to future survival in space. Learning about these plants growing in a low-gravity environment would us to the foundation for our future establishment of a space base." The project also yeast and fruit flies. The professor the six organisms in the project will make up a mini-ecosystem. The plants will oxygen and food for the fruit flies, and the yeast could manage the flies' waste and the dead plants to another food source.
