Flowers in Space! Zinnias Set to Bloom on International Space Station

The International Space Station is about to get a little homier, thanks to a flower garden that should bloom in early 2016.

On Monday, Nov. 16, NASA astronaut Kjell Lindgren activated an experiment to test whether flowering plants can grow in space. Dubbed the "Veggie" plant-growth system, it's the same technology that grew red romaine lettuce on the space station earlier this year.

This time, it'll grow zinnias.

The story is too old to be commented.
