How will cows survive on the Moon?
One of the most vexing questions asked about space, scientists have spent decades debating this key issue.

To the best of our knowledge, there are no current plans to launch cows into space. For one reason, cows tend to be large animals that don’t launch easily or cheaply. As friendly as cows may be, head-to-head comparisons show that robotic rovers are usually more effective as scientific explorers.
