What smells of space: a company from San Francisco will release a perfume based on the development of NASA

For a month and a half (since the beginning of May 2020), the startup collected about $ 40 thousand, which exceeded the original goal several times.

The smell of space was designed for NASA astronauts to help them adapt to new conditions before being sent to the ISS. The fragrance was developed by chemist Steve Pearce. NASA contracted with Pierce in 2008, and the chemist developed the odor for approximately four years.

Astronaut Peggy Witson compared the scent of space with the smell of a pistol immediately after being shot from. She echoes the description of perfume.

“Astronauts describe the smell as a mixture of gunpowder, fried steak, raspberries and rum,” the Kickstarter’s description of the Eau de Space bouquet says.
