China is the first country to grow a plant on the moon.
In January 2019, China made history when it landed its Chang’-4 spacecraft on the ground of the moon.
They carried a mini-biosphere called the Lunar Micro Ecosystem (LME) across the lunar surface.
Potato seeds, cotton seeds, rapeseeds, leaven, fruit fly eggs, all these things they wanted to grow on the moon.
All the weeds were slowly killed, only the cotton plant survived.
That is why cotton became the first plant to be grown on the moon.
