Hi, everyone!

I found this funny article in the news:

Space smells like 'Steak and Metal'

OUTER space smells of fried steak, scientists revealed yesterday.

The universe also has an aroma of hot metal and motorbike welding, Nasa experts said.

Astronauts reported the bizarre scents on their suits when they returned from space walks.
The space agency has commissioned Steven Pearce of British fragrance firm Omega Ingredients to recreate the smells to help train spacemen.
He said: "When astronauts were de-suiting and taking off helmets, they all reported quite particular odours.
"We have already produced the smell of fried steak, but hot metal is more difficult.
"We think it's a high energy vibration in the molecule and that's what we're trying to add to it now."
Mr Pearce told pupils at Moorside High School, Manchester, he hoped the smells would be ready this year.

I'm confused! Does this mean that smell is not triggered by matter, like its energy oscillations or something?

Well, they said they think the smell is caused, at least in part, by a high energy vibration in the molecule. But I guess it's kind of hard for them to know exactly what is causing the steak smell. Hey, Holiday, maybe God is grillin'? LOL!

Considering that everything seems to taste like chicken and everything is different combination of matter, I guess it is just as plausible that space smells like steak. Or maybe cattle are planning their revenge on humans, thus, why the astronauts smell steak. The hot metal and motor bike welding? The cattle have space shuttles that resemble Harley Davidson Motorcycles.
