Caption

Space sunflower. Two sunflowers grown as a school project. The one on the left is a normal plant whilst the one on the right has been grown from seeds that were flown into space and orbited the Earth onboard the International Space Station (ISS). Being in space exposes the seeds to cosmic radiation that can alter them, and may change their genetic material. The result is an odd/unhealthy looking plant with too many flower heads growing on one stem.
