Fact of the day:
Ever wondered what does "Space" smell like?

Astronauts are remarkably consistent in reporting the so-called “Space Scent” after lengthy space walks, bringing it back in on their suits, helmets, gloves, and tools.
According to former astronauts, space smells like a mix of seared meat, gunpowder, metal, raspberries, and rum.
Three-time spacewalker and former NASA astronaut, Thomas Jones says space carries an odour of ozone, which smells of faint bitterness and gun powder. But wait, a recent expedition has brought forth a new scent in space.
Astronomers searching for amino acid particles in a giant dust cloud at the heart of the Milky Way have concluded that the ball of dust and gas carries a substance called ethyl formate, the chemical responsible for the flavour of raspberries. Ethyl formate also gives off a smell of rum.
Overall, space smells oddly funny and random.
