While several discoveries have been made on space in different visits in past years, some astronauts from NASA have recently revealed about how the space smells, a recent report has revealed.
The space’s smell is though not worth loathing or abhorring, it is somewhat similar to the odour of seared steak. However, none of the previous astronauts who visited space were able to sense the space.
The astronauts on their mission in 2003 did the same when they needed to remove their helmets at the International space station. It has been found that as they took off their helmets, a strong and very pungent aroma stuck not only to their helmets, but their gloves, suits and tools as well.
Also, they determined that the particles smelling so were most probably fugitives coming out of the near-vacuum. They have told that the metallic phase of the trace was in some way related to high-energy vibrations of ions.
“It reminded me of my college summers where I labored for many hours with an arc welding torch repairing heavy equipment for a small logging outfit”, Kevin Ford, an astronaut said.
In order to set the wheels in motion for astronaut training, a chemist named Steven Pearce has also been recruited by the agency, who would soon recreate the same scent on Earth.
