This article is pretty neat.
The way they describe the flower sounds cool to me for some reason good choice of words.

A little snipped for y'all..

A lunar bouquet of flowers could greet astronauts who next set foot on the moon.

Odyssey Moon, a team competing for a $30 million purse in the Google Lunar X Prize contest, officially joined forces with another private space firm Friday to deliver the first greenhouse to the moon as part the "Lunar Oasis" project.

"Imagine a bright flower on a plant in a crystal clear growth chamber on the surface of the Moon, with the full Earth rising above the Moonscape behind it; these are the ideas that got me interested in space," said Jane Poynter, president and founder of Paragon Space Development Corporation. fingers on the moon and they're not alien.

Sounds crazy, but this could be just part of a competition/challenge that sets many tasks. Let's hope we don't colonise the moon with greenflies too and wouldn't it be wierd to get (back) there and find something has already swiped them and has them on their mantlepiece in a lunarian crystal vase?

Typical foolishness from the Space Religion people.
In the words on the eniminable "Jacko" Michael Jackson:
"Thats Ignorant".

Doing anything in space has ignored the greatest scientific minds
in history. So it makes sense NASA started with the big lie
Nazis ignoring the Lord Kelvin near absolute temperatures,
the radiation levels of high speed particles discovered Tesla
some how transformed into Cosmic Rays and the inevitable bumpy
ride of Einstein's warped space.

ED: Right off they make big assumptions if not lies:
"A lunar bouquet of flowers could greet astronauts who next set foot on the moon."

Will there be a next, was there a first.

Anything like this can only be positive. Look forward to seeing what happens if it goes ahead.
