Oi, Someone’s Grown A Flower In Space, How Fuckin’ Insane Is That

Our fave International Man Of Space Relations, NASA astronaut Scott Kelly, has wowed us once again with his truly red hot ‘I’m tweeting from space, motherfuckers’ content. 

He’s aboard the International Space Station, and pretty regularly tweets mind-blowing pictures of Earth from space. And you don’t think that’s #lifegoals, then you’re just straight up wrong. You’re wrong. 

He’s now gone a step further: he’s actually grown a flower aboard the ISS while in orbit, and tweeted photos of it with the caption, “Yes, there are other life forms in space!”

Astronauts aboard the ISS have only previously been able to grow romaine lettuce and rocket – never anything with flowers, because flowers are apparently more susceptible to dying. 

There’s a bunch of super adorbs photos of Kelly tending to his lettuce plants and flowers (and getting a lil’ devo when they died of mould, CUTEY) on the NASA website, which he’s linked in the below tweet:
