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.
