SOME TIME FOR YOURSELF: PLAN IT

We’re always using our vision to gaze up at the stars. And when we’re watching sci-fi, we think about sound in space (and the lack thereof). But we don’t frequently consider what space SMELLS like. Astronauts have reported back that it has a metallic and burn-y odor. Dying stars will do that to a place. When Cassini was analyzing Saturn’s moon Titan with its composite infrared spectrometer, we tried to recreate the mixture and discovered that it probably smells a lot like gasoline. But we also know that Sagittarius B2, a gas cloud at the centre of the Milky Way galaxy, has ethyl formate in it. Which means it could smell like rum and taste like raspberries. Sounds stellarly scrumptious!

In our imaginary universe, all the celestial bodies smell delicious. Earth, for instance, is ocean-breeze-scented; the Moon is French-vanilla-scented. Drop one in a warm bath and let your troubles dissolve away along with the planet. Calgon can take you away, but these will launch you straight out of Earth’s atmosphere. We’ll let you work out how to get back.
