A former NASA astronaut has collaborated with chefs at the Four Seasons Resort in Costa Rica to create a multi-course, space-influenced dinner, called 'Taste the Stars'.


Franklin Chang Diaz, a record-setting, seven-time shuttle mission specialist, has successfully blended a real meteorite into a space-rock-infused steak sauce which obtains its authentic asteroid flavoring by incorporating 'Meteorito' wine, a cabernet sauvignon made in Chile that is steeped with a 4.5-million-year-old, 3-inch-long meteorite, Fox News reported.

The tasting menu features molecular cooking techniques and unconventional ingredients and each of the meal's courses has a cosmic title, including 'Universe' and 'The Milky Way', and is priced at 195 dollars per adult and 100 dollars for children.
