An astronaut tells about her experience with the smell of the International Space Station

According to the American “space”, Samantha added, “When I arrived here two months ago on my second trip, I could immediately smell a very strange smell that immediately brought me back to the memories and sensations of the smells of my first trip…but within days, I got used to it. Now I can’t feel that smell anymore.”

Cristoforetti did not explain what the ISS smells like, although it did reveal that the space station’s capable filters remove most odors.
