After spending a year on the station the seeds were returned to the Earth where some were sent off to a lab for testing while others were planted. Surprisingly, one of the stones from the cherry tree that had been growing for four years suddenly burst in to bloom a full six years earlier than expected.

"There is the possibility that exposure to stronger cosmic rays accelerated the process of sprouting and overall growth," said plant physiologist Tomita-Yokotani.

"From a scientific point of view, we can only say we don't know why."

Cosmic rays made the Fantastic Four and the Incredible Hulk, I don't see why a cosmic cherry tree with super powers isn't logical.

Seriously though, very interesting. Screw GMO, just send regular seeds to space and bring them back.

This is interesting, because if in the future man tries to colonize another planet, the seed he takes from Earth my not produce any where else.

Hmmm I bet some NASA scientists are looking into this as I type.
