Police arrested an amateur biologist who flower-napped "Cosmonaut," the only orchid ever grown in outer space, and planned to sell it on the black market to an orchid collector, a Soviet newspaper said Friday. "Cosmonaut," which was grown aboard the Salyut 6 space station and returned to Earth in 1980 on the Soyuz-36 spacecraft, died during the bungled flower-napping, the Socialist Industry newspaper said.
