The world’s first female space tourist, Anousheh Ansari (whose family sponsors the prestigious Ansari X Prize), caught a whiff of “outer space smells” and discovered it has homecooked, lip-smacking goodness.
From her blog:
They said it is a very unique smell. As they pulled the hatch open on the Soyuz side, I smelled â€œSPACE.â€ It was strangeâ€¦ kind of like burned almond cookie. I said to them, â€œIt smells like cookingâ€ and they both looked at me like I was crazy and exclaimed: “Cooking!â€
I said, â€œYesâ€¦ sort of like something is burningâ€¦ I donâ€™t know it is hard to explainâ€¦â€
