WTF: "Space rays" caused trees to bloom.

158 views 3 hours ago
Cherry trees mysteriously bloom after seeds spent 8 months in space. Get the full story at http://www.theresident.net

TRANSCRIPT:
Botanists harvested seeds from a famous 1250-year old cherry tree in Japan, but they've been unable to grow trees so far. In 2008, several of the seeds were sent up to the International Space Station as part of an educational experiment. The seeds spent 8 months up there. When they got back, scientists planted them. And now, only 4 years later, four have turned into tall trees with flowers on them. But cherry trees normally take at least 10 years to bloom, let alone grow to 13 feet tall. The scientists are freaking out! They say they have no idea why the trees bloomed so fast other than something special in the cosmic environment or some kind of, quote, space rays. That's insane! Hopefully they'll pursue this because I for one want to know what the fuck is in these space rays. Get the full story at theresident.net

"60 Seconds" is The Resident's new series. It's kind of like, "60 Minutes," only a lot shorter.
