Because the growth period of arabi▓dopsis is short and convenient to observe. And potatoes could become a major source of food for future space travelers," said Liu. "Our experiment might help accumulate knowledge for building a lunar ba▓se and long-term residence on the Moon."The far sideWith its special environment and complex ge▓ological history, the far side of the Moon is a▓ hot spot for scientific and space expl

e Aitken Basin was chosen as the landing site for Chang'e-4 as the region is believed to have great scientific research pote▓ntial. As a gravitational equilibrium can be maint▓ained there, it will be able to stay in stable orbit and operate for a long time."We will m▓ake efforts to enable the relay satellite to work as long as possible to serve other ▓probes, including those from other countries," said Ye Peijian, a leading Chinese ae▓rospace expert and consultant to China's lunar exploration program.The Lunar Exploration and Space Program Center of the China National Space Administration (CNSA) has invited the public ▓to write down their hopes for lunar and space exploration.
