Lunar farms will be a reality very soon and allow astronauts living in permanent bases on the Moon to enjoy the same high-quality fruits and vegetables they are accustomed to on Earth, US molecular biologist and horticulturist Anna-Lisa Paul told Efe via videoconference.

That expert led a team that last week announced a new breakthrough in efforts to grow plants in small samples of lunar soil brought back by three of the Apollo landing missions.
