NASA scientists have been successful in growing crops by artificially preparing the atmosphere and soil like Mars and Moon. They believe that if human settlements are established on the Red Planet (Mars) and the Moon in future, food will be grown there for them.
Researchers at the University of Wageningen in the Netherlands have also said that "seeds from crops grown on Mars and the Moon are also likely to be obtained so that a new crop can be made. He grew ten different crops, including tomatoes, radishes, rye, quinoa, spinach and peas".
Weiger Weimlink of Wageningen University said, "We were filled with excitement when we saw the first tomatoes grown in artificially prepared Mars soil turning red." This meant that we have moved towards a sustainable agricultural ecosystem".
Researchers had developed such an environment artificially by mixing normal soil in soil taken from the upper cover of the Earth of Mars and Moon.
