The first #SpaceZinnias are blooming in space and enjoying the sun's rays thanks to #NASA - National Aeronautics and Space Administration​@NASA Astronaut Scott Kelly​@StationCDRKelly channeling his inner #MarkWatney on the International Space Station​  #ISS. Read my story with Kelly's dramatic pics.  #spaceflower
The first Zinnia flower to bloom in space is dramatically catching the sun’s rays like we have never seen before - through the windows of the Cupola on the International Space Station (ISS) while simultaneously providing a splash of soothing color, nature and reminders of home to the multinational crew living and working on the orbital science laboratory.
