An Out-of-This-World Lunch Date in Florida

Have you ever dreamed of doing lunch with an astronaut? It's now possible at the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex in Florida, although you'll share your "table" with up to 99 other fans.

The new "Dine With an Astronaut" program has proved so popular it was recently expanded from twice a week to every day, a spokeswoman said.

For $29.95 per adult and $19.95 for children ages 3 to 11, you get lunch (including a chocolate "space shuttle" for dessert) and a Q-and-A session with an astronaut.

Six-time shuttle rider Story Musgrave and Soyuz veteran Jean-Loup Chretien are among the scheduled participants. Tel. (321) 449-4444,
