The smell of space that NASA created to prepare astronauts for their missions beyond Earth’s atmosphere is being turned into a perfume.
As the result of a successful Kickstarter campaign organized by Matt Richmond, the scent of space, created decades ago by NASA to ready astronauts for their missions, is being converted into a perfume — Eau de Space — that will be mass-produced.
According to Richmond, this smell has been off-limits to everyone but astronauts for years, but “Through sheer determination, grit, a lot of luck, and a couple of Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests, we got it out.”
Expert perfumers helped create this fragrance to ensure that it accurately replicates the real deal. Chemist Steve Pearce — the same person NASA sought out in 2008 to develop the original scent — was recruited to make the perfume.
When struggling to describe to CNN what this space scent smells like, Richmond said that “Astronauts describe the smell as a mix of gunpowder, seared steak, raspberries and rum.”
Eau de Space has been created as the first product developed by the creators whose goal is to “increase STEM through experiential education.” The first shipments of the perfume are slated to start this October, and for $29, you could smell out of this world.
