Have you ever wanted to smell like outer space? If so, you’re not alone. People have already pledged over $330,000 to bring a NASA-designed fragrance that smells like outer space to the masses. It was developed by chemist Steve Pearce of Omega Ingredients who originally developed this scent over a decade ago for use by NASA during astronaut field training.
Many former astronauts, like Chris Hadfield, confirmed that the ISS’s airlock smells like gunpowder and burnt steak due to the vacuum sucking trace chemicals out of the metal walls of the spacecraft. Eventually, this fragrance can be ordered in bulk for educational institutions or individually in 4-ounce bottles if the campaign reaches its goal. More information here.
