Astronaut nurses zinnia to full bloom after mould invasion

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. The International Space Station now has a bright pop of orange, thanks to commander Scott Kelly’s green thumb.

Kelly showed off his gardening results; a thriving zinnia with a beautiful orange-yellow bloom over the weekend. He posted photos of the flower on his Twitter account.

“Yes, there are other life forms in space!” Kelly said in a tweet.
