What does Space Smell Like

Astronauts who have gone on spacewalks consistently speak of space's extraordinarily peculiar odor.
They can't smell it while they're actually bobbing in it, because the interiors of their space suits just smell plastic-y. But upon stepping back into the space station and removing their helmets, they get a strong, distinctive whiff of the final frontier. The odor clings to their suit, helmet, gloves and tools.
Fugitives from the near-vacuum — probably atomic oxygen, among other things — the clinging particles have the acrid aroma of seared steak, hot metal and welding fumes. Steven Pearce, a chemist hired by NASA to recreate the space odor on Earth for astronaut training purposes, said the metallic aspect of the scent may come from high-energy vibrations of ions.

But astronauts don't dislike the sharp smell of space, necessarily. After a 2003 mission, astronaut Don Pettit described it this way on a NASA blog:
"It is hard to describe this smell; it is definitely not the olfactory equivalent to describing the palette sensations of some new food as 'tastes like chicken.' The best description I can come up with is metallic; a rather pleasant sweet metallic sensation. It reminded me of my college summers where I labored for many hours with an arc welding torch repairing heavy equipment for a small logging outfit. It reminded me of pleasant sweet smelling welding fumes. That is the smell of space."

Mars Ones plans suicide mission to the Red Planet for 2023                                   

There’s an old joke about sending someone you hate on a one-way trip to Mars. Now, a Dutch entrepreneur has formed a company around this concept -- and it’s no joke.
Bas Lansdorp, the 35-year-old founder of Mars One, told his company is serious about a one-way mission. The company will hold a worldwide lottery next year to select 40 people for a training team. They will then set up a mock colony in the desert, possibly somewhere in the U.S., for three months. This initial team will be reduced to ten crew members.
They will then be sent to Mars, never again to return.
“We will send humans to Mars in 2023,” he told “They will live there the rest of their lives. There will be a habitat waiting for them, and we’ll start sending four people every two years.”
The habitat will consist of several housing structures that Mars One will launch before 2023. In 2016, the company plans to launch the first supply vessel. In 2018, it plans to send a rover.
a return mission to retrieve the explorers might not be out of the question.
“In theory, it is less complex to get people back to Earth once you have a sustainable settlement on Mars,” Lansdorp told “However, our astronauts will be offered a one-way trip. We have no idea when it will be possible to offer return tickets.”
Buzz Aldrin, the lunar module pilot with Neil Armstrong who landed on the moon, has maintained for years that the only way for humans to reach Mars is to plan a one-way mission.
Still, Lansdorp has not quite announced how the Mars One lottery will work. The selection process will start next year, he says. Unfortunately, you can’t make any suggestions.

Fei Lin's Penis Stolen By Thieves

Thieves stole a man's penis while he slept, according to police.

Fei Lin, 41, of the Niqiao village near Wenling City,
in east China’s Zhejiang province,

told police he was asleep
when the thieves burst into his room
and put a bag over his head,

according to CEN/EUROPICS and as reported in the Daily Star.

"They put something over my head and
pulled down my trousers and then they ran off,"
Lin said. "I was so shocked I didn't feel a thing -
then I saw I was bleeding and my penis was gone."

Police believe the attackers were jealous lovers
of several local women whom Lin was having affairs with,

the Austrian Times reported.

Lin denied taking part in any infidelity.
Emergency workers and police searched for Lin's anatomy
but turned up nothing, according to TNT Magazine.
The penis thieves are nowhere to be found,
but police said they're looking for the jealous lovers.

Rodney Dwayne Valentine Refuses To Leave Jail, Charged With Trespassing


A man who'd just been released from jail
in northern North Carolina was arrested again
for refusing to leave the jail after authorities
wouldn't give him a ride to a motel.

The News & Record of Greensboro reports
( that 37-year-old
Rodney Dwayne Valentine was charged with trespassing.

Valentine was released from the Rockingham County jail Saturday
morning after being behind bars since May 22.
The sheriff's office says he asked them to drive him
to a local motel and they refused.

Deputies charged Valentine with second-degree trespassing
when he had refused to leave the jail by Saturday afternoon.
He's being held on $500 bond and is scheduled to appear
in court Aug. 9. It was not clear if he has a lawyer.

JoJo Keefe Bitten By Rabid Bat After Strange Woman Tells Her To Hold It

Beware of strangers bearing bats.
Ten-year-old JoJo Keefe of Spencer,
Massachusetts was with her family at a local park last week
when she and some other children noticed
a small bat that had fallen from a tree, WHDH reports.

Keefe says that a nearby woman picked up the bat and
asked the children if they wanted to hold it.
The woman allegedly encouraged the children to hold the bat
even when they were hesitant. “Another little girl said,
'I want to hold it will it bite me?,'"

Keefe told CBS Boston.

"And the lady was like, no it’s the friendliest thing ever."

The woman told the children she had a degree
in bat biology, according to the Daily Mail.
She has not yet been identified.

The children began passing the bat around,
but when it reached Keefe, it bit her finger.
When her mother, Maria Keefe, found out what had happened,
she immediately put the bat in a bucket and had
animal control officers test the animal for rabies.

It was good that she did, because the bat
tested positive for the deadly virus.
Keefe has now undergone rabies shots and is expected to be fine.
However, officials are concerned for other children
who may have handled the bat,
WCVB reports.
Even if no one else was bitten,
a child could have been infected
if the bat's saliva made it into a scrape,
cut, or the child's nose, mouth, or eyes.
After such a frightening experience,
Keefe won't be touching anymore wild animals anytime soon.
"All the other kids were saying it, ‘Oh it’s really sweet,'"
she told WHDH.
"'It doesn’t have rabies, it won’t bite.’
Then it bit me, it had rabies, and it wasn’t sweet."
