Anousha Ansari, the first female space tourist, is keeping a blog of her amazing experiences. She gets 3 batches of email access per day, and so I assume someone is then posting the email to her blog. The whole thing sounds truely amazing (motion sickness aside) – but for some reason the thing that brought it all home to me the most was when she describes the smell of space as she enters the airlock between the shuttle and the ISS. She can actually smell space – and apparently it smells of cooking. Could this be a result of the gazillions of BBQ’s in space also known as stars? Or perhaps its the leftover smell of the big bang? Either way – space smells – how cool is that!!?!
