Moon Trees

Some trees that we can even say once orbited the moon.
Scene 1971 Apollo 14 Mission. Stuart Rousseau was selected in the command module. He was a former smoke jumper in the forest department. The head of the department who knew he was going to space was Ed. Cliff asked if I could give him the seeds of some trees. Upon hearing this, Rousseau agreed and collected them in his personal kit.

So during the mission he orbited the moon with seeds. Everyone thought that everything would be destroyed during the decontamination process that came back. But to everyone’s surprise, most of the seeds gradually began to germinate. Thus valuable information was obtained that the seeds could survive in spatial conditions, including microgravity. They grow in many places today.
