[crosspost] The volunteer "Chief Sniffer" for NASA is doing an AMA in r/space - he smells objects before they go up to crewed space missions to keep stinky things off of flights.

My name is George Aldrich and I have been a Chemical Specialist at NASA for 44 years. I primarily do toxicity tests on objects before they go into space. I am also a volunteer on NASA's odor panel. We test the smells of all items that will be within the habitable areas of the International Space Station and check for disagreeable or offensive smells may nauseate astronauts and possibly put astronaut’s productivity and mission at risk. I have been featured on Stan Lee's Superhumans for my impeccable sense of smell and have most recently been a guest on Inverse.com's podcast about the cosmos I Need My Space
