Ahh, burning odor of hydrocarbons

if we don't make it there
our kids or our kids' kids are
gonna make it


To outer space

And it has its unique smells and pockets of smells.

From lunar smells of firecrackers and spent gunpowder, to spaces smelling of sweet sugar or sulfur

"The final frontier smells a lot like a NASCAR race—a bouquet of hot metal, diesel fumes and barbecue. The source? Dying stars, mostly. 

We have a few clues as to what space smells like. First of all, there were interviews with astronauts that we were given, when they had been outside and then returned to the space station and were de-suiting and taking off their helmets - they all reported quite particular odours.

For them, what comes across is a smell of fried steak, hot metal and even welding a motorbike, one of them said."
