Students honored for Tiangong space seed proposal

LOCAL students' proposals to carry endangered plant seeds into outer space have been adopted by China's space lab module Tiangong-1.

The seeds will be carried back to the earth early next year when Shenzhou-9 spacecraft is launched, teachers said today.

Minhang District No. 3 Middle School students proposed carrying the seeds of four kinds of endangered plants into space for a potential gene mutation in a bid to increase their reproduction ability.

The scheme helped the students win the title of the city's "10 most touching student or groups." They received the award together with other nine students or student groups today.
