Does space have a smell?

    I’m sure there are smells in space, but it may depend where in space you are and what is around you to influence the smell. I’m not sure if man will ever get to truly “smell” space since there is no air out in smell to breath into our nostrils, not to mention removing a space helmet outside the spaceship would probably result in certain death. But theoretically speaking, I believe space would smell like whatever is occupying that area, whether it be a planet or space debris. That’s what I believe the astronauts smelt when they came back inside the space capsules; they were smelling whatever debris and bits of ozone were in that area of space. I don’t think that space has a smell on its own though, since space is pretty much a void.
