The first ever plants have sprouted on the moon, after China's Chang'e-4 mission carried cotton seeds to the "dark side", facing away from Earth.

It is hoped the experiment will pave the way for long-term space exploration and provide astronauts with the means to grown their own crops, à la Damon.
The tasks of the Chang'e-4 include astronomical observation, surveying the moon's terrain and mineral makeup and measuring the neutron radiation and neutral atoms to study the environment of its far side.

"In addition, the yeast can decompose the waste of plants and drosophila melanogaster and grow, and can also serve as food of drosophila melanogaster". Meanwhile, sprouts in an Earth-based control experiment were shown to be evidently performing much better.
The seeds and eggs were kept dormant as the probe traveled through space.
Cotton grown on the moon could someday be used to make clothing and the potatoes could be a food source, Watson said, especially as a pit stop on trips to Mars.
