NASA to attempt to grow vegetables on the moon

 According to Britain's Daily Telegraph, the space agency that put men on the moon will attempt to grow vegetables and herbs on the lunar surface to see if humans could someday actually live there.

Obviously, there is no atmosphere surrounding the moon that could sustain life, so NASA scientists aren't merely thinking of taking a spacecraft there someday and tossing some seeds into the moon's surface of space dust.

Rather, the British report said, NASA "plans to send seeds to the moon in 2015 in sealed canisters containing everything that is needed for the seedlings to thrive."
