This Is The First Flower Grown In Space (And It's A Zinnia)

This is the first flower grown in space (previously: lettuce). It's a zinnia. Are the petals curled because it was grown in low gravity? Beats me. Maybe it's just a runt. Now I want a space bouquet for Valentine's Day or it will be ruined and I'll throw a tantrum at the restaurant because I am mature.

Thanks to Charles, who would have preferred a sunflower.
