Orion had a thing for burgers

Orion  (Engraving by Johann Bayer, 1603) 
Orion, the heroic hunter of ancient Greek mythology, must have needed something to keep his strength up.

That something might have been a Humongous Mac.  Long hidden from human view, “a giant, dusty ‘space hamburger’” was recently discovered within the Orion Nebula.

Upon closer inspection, however, this yummy-looking snack turned out to be nothing but a “cloud of gas and dust that rotates around a central point.” 

Poor old Orion!  He should have instead eaten a nearby Scorpion before it put him through the meat grinder.
