The Chang’e-5 lunar probe started its 23-day space travel with a variety of plant seeds on November 24, 2020, including 40-gram rice seeds. These seeds traveled through Van Allen Belts and encountered violent sunspot activity during the trip. Finally, they landed on Earth successfully with the spacecraft. It was the first time Chinese researchers conducted mutation breeding experiments in deep space.
