SRSLY

So the UAE Space Agency has said that it's aiming to get some date palms growing on Mars, as part of the sixth Liwa Ajman Dates and Honey Festival. 

The agency says it is planning to send palm tree seeds to the International Space Agency, to conduct tests to see if they're viable for growing on Mars. 

In a statement to the Emirates News Agency, WAM, Project Supervisor and Creator of the Palm Trees Experiment in Space Concept, Rashid Al Zaabi, said that palm trees were chosen as the climate on Mars is similar to that of what's needed to grow the trees. 

The agency declared that it will send palm tree seeds to the International Space Agency over the coming days.

AMAZING!
