Cherry Tree From Space Di Japan !

Memang sesuatu yang menarik lah !
A cosmic mystery is uniting monks and scientists in Japan after a cherry tree grown from 
a seed that orbited the Earth for eight months bloomed years earlier than expected --
 and with very surprising flowers.
The four-year-old sapling -- grown from a cherry stone that spent time aboard the
 International Space Station (ISS) -- burst into blossom on April 1, possibly a full six years
 ahead of Mother Nature's normal schedule.
A cherry tree in bloom, grown from a cherry pit that spent time onboard the International 
Space Station (ISS), is shown at the Ganjoji temple in Gifu city, central Japan,

 The stones were sent to the ISS in November 2008 and came back to Earth in July 
the following year with Japanese astronaut Koichi Wakata, after circling the globe 
4,100 times.Some were sent for laboratory tests, but most were ferried back to their 
places of origin, and a selection were planted at nurseries near the Ganjoji temple.

By April this year, the "space cherry tree" had grown to around four metres (13 feet) tall,
 and suddenly produced nine flowers -- each with just five petals, compared with about 30 
on flowers of the parent tree.

It normally takes about 10 years for a cherry tree of the similar variety to bear its first buds.

Spring officially began in Japan on Tuesday after scientists declared that the cherry blossom
had opened. People lined Ueno Park in downtown Tokyo to enjoy the trees, and many 
snapped pictures of the pink blossom on their phones
