Food That Is Out of This World
In response to my post on eating locally, TJIC suggested eating very non-locally:
Personally, I’m still waiting to bite into a yummy ear of Moon corn (grows six times bigger because of the lower gravity, I hear!)You might eat a Moon Pie from the Moon or a Mars Bar from Mars. I'm reminded of the following passage from Men of Mathematics:
The decade following the Ceres episode was rich in both happiness and sorrow for Gauss. Eminent men who had the ear of the polite public ridiculed the young man of twenty four for wasting his time on so useless a pastime as the computation of a minor planet's orbit. Ceres might be the goddess of the fields, but it was obvious to the merry wits that no corn grown on the new planet would ever find its way into the Brunswick market of a Saturday afternoon.I think we should take that as a challenge.
