Does it smell bad on the International Space Station?
Obviously everyone is working together in close quarters and there is not much fresh air, plus human waste isn't exactly GOING anywhere. Does it smell really bad as a result, or have the designers of the space station taken special precautions to reduce unpleasant odors?
I am sure they have ample air filters that probably recycle oxygen. That process probably removes odors, etc. It is probably colder then we think it would up there too so odors may not be as prevalent.
BTW......for human waste management the loo is fitted with a vaccum.which means "everything"(yes everything) that comes out of the astronauts' "posterior end" is sucked in the vacuum-shit-pot....that means no gases at least....dunno about other things.....
Frontier persons of every age have had to sacrifice hygiene for the greater good of all humanity. I almost get teary eyed when I think about it. . . .
I would like to think NASA addressed the problem of smells in tight quarters. The other thing to remember is that people get used to a smell over time and they don't have much company to worry about impressing...

Do you think we have a space station on the Moon already?It's been over 40 years since we watched the first men walk on the Moon. Do you think it's reasonable that we never went back after all that effort? Or have we had bases established on the Moon ever since.
