Researchers at the University of Florida (UF/IFAS) have successfully grown plants in lunar soil extracted from three NASA missions to the Moon.  Rob Feral and Anna Lisa Paul, UF/IFAS Horticulture Department, were the first scientist to show that plants can be grown in soil from the moon. This was a key first step toward developing space travel missions from the Moon to Mars or other planets.  Watch the video that highlights this scientific breakthrough at the University of Florida.
