First flower bloomed in space, NASA’s Scott Kelly Shared Photo of Flower Grown in Space

Flower bloomed in space for the first time, NASA astronaut Scott Kelly shared an image of a blooming zinnia that grown in International Space Station. Kelly made the news public  on Saturday using her social media profile.

The team has managed to grow zinnia plant which is an edible plant. The team used LED’s of RED, BLUE & GREEN to produce conditions similar to sunlight. Zinnia plant is difficult to grow & it is considered as a great success to grow plant like it in space as these can be useful in future space projects like ‘MISSION MARS’.
