The only thing cooler than a being an astronaut who gets to explore nearby worlds would be one day landing on a planet completely made of delicious chocolate.

It hasn’t happened yet, but students at Johns Hopkins University put melted and solid chocolate under a powerful electron microscope, and when magnified the surface of that delicious treat looks exactly like images sent back from a Nasa rover on another world.
