Scientists were pleased that lunar soil could explode the seeds

Scientists have planted plants on lunar soil for the first time, an important step in the longevity of the moon.

Scientists used small soil samples collected during Apollo missions between 1969 and 1972 to grow a watercress.

To the astonishing group, the seeds sprouted after two days.

“I can not tell you how surprised we are,” said Anna-Lisa Paul, a professor at the University of Florida in the United States. who is the author of recent findings.
