News: What does Space smell like?

News Link

Apparently that’s what NASA wants astronaut wanna-bees to know before they get there. So they’ve hired Steven Pearce, a chemist, to recreate it. So what does it smell like? “For them, what comes across is a smell of fried steak, hot metal, and even welding a motorbike, one of them said.”

Hmmm. I always wanted to know. I wonder what they are really smelling though? So I looked it up. Apparently its the smell that OTHERS smell once someone comes back from a space walk – not the guys out in space themselves (well not until they get back in anyway). The news media really didn’t tell us who was smelling this and where. Which has resulted in a lot of snarky comments online. Cool eh?? (Link 1 and Link 2)
