|Orion (Engraving by Johann Bayer, 1603)|
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.
