The Milky Way is berry good
Now this is the kind of science we like to read about: The Milky Way could taste like raspberries.
Scientists say they have discovered two of the most complex carbon-rich molecules ever found in interstellar space, including a substance called ethyl formate, the chemical responsible for the flavor of the fruit. Ergo: The Milky Way "could taste of raspberries." The findings were announced during the European Week of Astronomy and Space Science at the University of Hertfordshire in the United Kingdom.
