I searched a number of articles to link for this story, but UK's Telegraph runs away with it, both for USING the phrase "space seed" - but also because they seem to be the only outlet who's used a photo of one of the actual trees grown from seeds which went into space.
What's the real headline? If you want to know before you click (and you haven't already heard): turns out, the spaceborne seeds' trees are now blooming six years earlier than normal terrestrial cherry trees blossom.
Special mention: I love the early-1960s feel of the "cosmic rays" theory of causation here. LOVE.
