+ - Growing a flower in lunar gravity->

Submitted by smooth wombat
smooth wombat (796938) writes "If everything goes according to plan, an experiment designed to test if plants can grow in the limited lunar gravity will hitch a ride with a competitor for the Google Lunar X Prize. The press release from Paragon Space Development Corporation outlines its partnership with Odyssey Moon to be the first to grow a plant on another world. In addition to the experiment, Paragon will be helping Odyssey with the thermal control system and lander design. To win the prize, Odyssey must land its craft on the lunar surface by the end of 2014.

More details about the experiment, and obstacles to overcome, may be found in this MSNBC article."
