Here’s The First Flower Grown In Space

2200

Better memorize this one, it’ll come back at you on a trivia question in a few years:

What was the first flower grown in space? Zinnias.

space-zinnias

This was done aboard the International Space Station, and is actually the second plant grown–arugula has the distinction of being the first.

That’s two trivia questions for you.
