An official “Moon Tree” is growing at Kennedy Space Center, Florida. This sycamore was grown from a seed that was carried to the moon by Apollo 14 in 1971 and planted here in 1976.  More info about the many moon trees growing around the country is at:  You can watch an episode about moon trees on California’s Gold at:

UPDATE September 11, 2017:  Unfortunately Hurricane Irma destroyed the Moon Tree at Kennedy Space Center.  The only other moon tree growing locally is at Apollo Elementary in Titusville, Florida, which was planted in 2006.

    Just goes to show that there is life on other worlds (or moons) after all. Maybe all that ancient alien junk on History Channel has something after all!
