The moon is a lifeless world once again.

The cotton plants that sprouted on the moon’s far side aboard China’s Chang’e 4 lander are dead, done in by the bitter cold of the lengthy lunar night, GBTimes reported today (Jan. 16).

The article goes on to state the following:

These photosynthesizing pioneers were part of Chang’e 4’s biological experiment, which also included seeds of potato, rapeseed and Arabidopsis plants, as well as fruit-fly eggs and yeast. These organisms were encased in a 5.7-lb. (2.6 kilograms) canister, which touched town on the lunar far side with the Chang’e 4 lander-rover duo on the night of Jan. 2.
