When it comes to the origin of life on Earth and how it has evolved over time there are still a lot of questions in our mind. It turns out that the moon could play a key role in solving a lot of the mysteries.
An Israeli spacecraft called Beresheet almost made it to the moon in April. It took a selfie with the lunar surface in the background, but then lost contact with Earth and presumably crashed onto the lunar surface. Now it’s been revealed that the mission was carrying a cargo of dehydrated microscopic lifeforms known as tardigrades.
