NASA are releasing a fragrance that "smells like space"

  • NASA-Designed Perfume Brings The Smell Of Outer Space To Earth

However, the scents have been optimized and can be worn safely 'if you like the smell'.

Chances are, that though hasn't crossed your mind before.

To give you an idea of what space smells like, astronaut Peggy Whitson described it as, "kind of like a smell from a gun, right after you fire the shot". I say "typically", because SOMEONE apparently has, and they created a new fragrance for the world to smell. They needed to get used to the smell so there wouldn't be any surprises once they were up in space.

A new Kickstarter campaign lead by Eau de Space is pushing to make the fragrance available to everyone. That is the smell of space'.

If Eau de Space catches on, product manager Matt Richmond says that the company's next step will be to recreate the "Smell of the Moon" - another space-inspired scent.

That's probably not what you expected outer space to smell like at all.

As Thanksgiving travelers head home, experts worry over COVID-19 surge
COVID-19 hospitalizations reached record highs Thanksgiving week, surpassing previous surges and showing no signs of slowing down. On Friday, the United States marked the 25th consecutive day with more than 100,000 new coronavirus cases reported.

OR says mink farm has a Covid-19 outbreak
Last week, ODA officials said they had no plans to do inspections or test mink unless symptoms were reported. Ten samples from mink in OR were found to be positive for SARS-CoV-2, the animal virus linked to COVID-19.

Tony Antonelli, a retired NASA astronaut who flew aboard the Space Shuttle Discovery in 2009, still remembers the day he opened the hatch while in space for the first time.

In the video below, which appears on the Kickstarter page, you can see astronauts discussing the unique smell of space in greater detail.

Incidentally, this is the fragrance that was designed decades ago to train astronauts on how outer space actually smells like.

Consumers can purchase a four ounce bottle on the site that contains 'outer space, comet juice'. The makers are partnering with STEM for an experimental education program, so that every pledge amounts to a bottle of Eau de Space that is donated to a school of the backer's choosing. Unless he/she is a total space nerd like myself, the scent might be a little too much to secure a second date.

The scent was behind closed doors for many many years; however, the Eau de Space team was able to get a whiff of the recipe thanks to "determination, grit, a lot of luck, and a couple of Freedom of Information Act requests".
