The International Space Station has another living thing on board. Not an alien or extraterrestial. In fact it came from the earth in the first place.

We are referring to the familiar garden plant of zinnia, to be more particular, the orange zinnia.

It is US Astronaut Scott Kelly posting proud on his Twitter what an achievement of no less significant but much of a milestone by successfully growing the first flowering plant in space.

The plant has matured and reached its blooming season. So now, a living color in full bloom is aboard the International Space Station.

Sharing below the tweets of the astronaut he cannot contain his excitement and joy:

Wait, do you see a red zinnia, too?
