China grows "space rice!"
A great trip! 40 grams of rice seeds have get their hard-won harvest this summer, after a 23-day round trip to the moon onboard the Chang'e-5 lunar probe
This is how far China goes for any innovation and technology. Its praiseworthy! Praise to China!
That's good. I suggest and Hope you would be the first to try this on Martian surface
this is so awesome
I wonder these seeds have difference with other rice or not lol
why no mention about the effect? did it give better yield, or different taste or more resistant to pest?
It probably didn't, it's a gimmick like the space beer from a couple of years ago.
Do mutations happen more frequently in space due to the lower gravity?
yes, gene mutagenesis. not just factors of gravity, but also space micro-weight aggravated ions, multiple cosmic rays, large alternating magnetic fields and short-term overloads to cause mutations in seed genes.
@My Name Cool. Would be good to see super-hardy rice growing in deserts, now that would be a game changer.
@j vp The main hurdle with desert rice is water, which obviously is very scarce if not estent there. Would be better to look for space-influenced breeds of wheat and other types of grains that are naturally far more drought-resistant (also part of China's research; there was a dedicated space-breeding satellite with re-entry pod that launched a few years ago which carried seeds for hundreds of agricultural species).
Now that's awesome . Love from india
All Asian people can't live without Rice
Indian trolls are mighty jealous of Chinese space exploration success!
Fuck off then nobody forced you to come here to watch this sukhbir singh
@the truth why are you so hostile over words?
@Samus Aran7 India can't even built bicycle and trying to compete with China ?
