Astronaut's 'Taste The Stars' dinner menu features real meteorite sauce

A former NASA astronaut has brought a taste of space down to Earth while elevating the concept of space food to new heights.

"The food I ate in space was not what you would call 'fine dining,'" Franklin Chang Diaz, a record-setting, seven-time shuttle mission specialist, observed. "In fact, eating was a challenge altogether."

"But what if there was a way to experience the wonder of space without ever leaving Earth?" he proposed. "What if we could give new meaning to the phrase 'dining under the stars'?"

Chang Diaz recently set out to answer those questions by working with the chefs at the Four Seasons Resort in his home country of Costa Rica. By blending astronomy with molecular gastronomy, they succeeded in creating a multi-course, space-influenced dinner, called "Taste the Stars."

Well, the early 2011 news was that chemical compounds detected by spectroscopy would imply that raspberries should have been on the menu.
