The first human-made object to touch down on the moon, the Luna-2 of the erstwhile Soviet Union, landed in his territory in 1959. However, it wasn't alone as it was carrying some living things to introduce to the lunar environment.

The organisms aboard Chang'e-4 are in something of a symbiotic relationship, with the plants expected to provide the silkworms with oxygen and the worms providing the plants with carbon dioxide.

Rockcress has been grown in space before, including in one experiment on the International Space Station that showed the plants' leaves appearing to rise and fall as they detected the moon's gravity. After a successful moon landing, the lander and rover transmitted never before seen images of the Moon, which has to this day kept many of its secrets.

The "biosphere" experiment was the product of a collaboration between 28 Chinese universities, led by southwest China's Chongqing University, according to Xinhua. (3 kilograms) and includes dirt, nutrients and water. As for how exactly it works, sunlight will filter into the container through a "tube", and small cameras had been installed inside to observe the environment and gather data. It's a self-contained ecosystem, and scientists want to see what might happen to it over time.
