The Smell of Space

Steven Pearce, a chemist and managing director of fragrance manufacturing company Omega Ingredients has been commissioned by NASA to recreate the smell of space for astronauts in training.  What does space smell like?  Well astronauts claim that it's like "fried steak, hot metal and welding a motorbike".

I'm sure there's a very scientific reason behind this bizarre combination of scents that are wafting through our galaxy, but I'd like to take the creationist approach and explain it this way: 

God is James Dean and he's riding a motorcycle while holding a blazing hot cast iron pan full of brisket, and he's dragging a running arc welder behind him. - Rev. 23:1

These are the words of the lord.
