NASA Astronaut Grows the First Flower in Outer Space

Astronaut, Scott Kelly, has accomplished quite a phenomenal feat recently.  He successfully grew the first flower in outer space.  The flower is called Zinnias, and it’s actually edible.  This could potentially change the way astronauts eat in the future.  No more freeze-dried meals.  Here are some photos that Scott tweeted shortly after his successful attempt at growing a flower in space:
