Cotton is growing on the moon. China's space agency says seeds carried on a recent mission to the far side of the moon have started to sprout. It's being hailed as a major step toward long-term space exploration. The Chinese moon lander was carrying soil, along with cotton and potato seeds, yeast and fruit fly eggs. Chinese scientists hope the sealed container can create a self-sustaining environment.
