February 2011 Popular Science
Apparently, the "smelloscope" wasn't as far off as one might think: Although we really can't smell without the presence of an atmosphere of some sort, the February 2011 Popular Science has an article by Lizzie Schiffman entitled "What Does Space Smell Like?" -- apparently it smells like burnt stuff - due to the polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons from novae and supernovae. The preceding unsigned comment was written by 188.8.131.52.
- Maybe this can be the part of a new Trivia section. Can you provide a source? I don't feel like Googling, sorry. Sanfazer 23:22, 7 February 2011 (CET)
