Space Smells and 4 Other Things We Learned From Astronaut Mike Hopkins

After spending 166 days as a resident of the International Space Station, astronaut Mike Hopkins is back on Earth and sharing his insights into the quirks of living and working in orbit.

In a Reddit "Ask Me Anything" interview on Monday, Hopkins revealed something that television and movies have neglected to mention: Space smells.

"Space has a smell. And I don't mean inside the space station," he wrote. "When a visiting vehicle docks with the space station, there is 'space' between the two vehicles. Once the pressure is equalized and the hatch is opened, you have this metallic ionization-type smell. It's quite unique and very distinct."
