Gordon reveals that when he was growing up he wanted to be three things: a soccer player, a chef, and an astronaut. Hey, at least he got to really be one of those. When I was little I wanted to be thin, rich, and married. I'm currently batting zero on that.
Many of the kids want to be astronauts when they grow up, so they lose their minds when the special guest astronaut Tracy Caldwell Dyson comes out to answer their space-related questions. My only question for her is, What's it like to be a weightless woman? It sounds amazing.
Back at their stations, the tiny chefs lift up their mystery boxes to reveal the space-themed challenge. I was hoping for Dippin' Dots (you know, the ice cream of the future from 1997), but the challenge is actually to make a dish highlighting cheese. The reasoning is that the moon is mythically made of cheese and not because cheese is OUT OF THIS WORLD. I'm sorry. I just love cheese (both the food and the hacky joke style). Ian had apparently never heard the whole "the moon is made of cheese" story and seems to believe it to be scientific fact (+5).
