Is it possible to cultivate in lunar soil ?

Scientists (UFlorida & UFIFA Solutions) used the regolith sample collected during the Apollo 11,12 & 17 mission to experimentally grow Thale Cress (Arabidopsis taliana) in the soil (Regolith) first brought from the lunar surface.


In response to the fact that plants grow in regolith, we will now see if it will help us to cultivate them when we go to the moon for long periods of time.
