There is a terrible smell in the International Space Station, knowing the reason will not stop your ‘laughter’

The International Space Station (ISS) is called the home of space travelers. As travelers fly to the space station, millions of people on Earth wonder how they must have lived there. In space, passengers have all the facilities, yet one problem haunts them. A passenger who has spent a long time in the space station has revealed this, knowing about which you will also smile on your face. Astronauts have reported that the International Space Station smells like a ‘barbecue’ because astronauts pass more gas into orbit.

According to the Daily Star report, 50-year-old Tim Peake, who spent 186 days at the space station in 2016, told this surprising thing in response to a question asked by an 8-year-old during a podcast.

Tim Peake was asked how it felt to burp into space after wearing a helmet in the space station. Tim said that’s a good question. He revealed that in fact, travelers do not burp in space. He told that when we eat food, the body starts digesting it. During this gas is produced, but gas bubbles do not rise in space. In such a situation, there is only one ‘way’ left for them to come out. Tim said that the International Space Station actually had an ‘unusual’ smell.

Tim’s disclosure is really strange, because till date no astronaut has spoken about it. It is worth noting that while living in space, passengers have to go through many changes. It also has an effect on their brain. In a report recently, it was revealed that researchers have detected changes in the brains of astronauts coming to the ISS. He researched the brains of 15 astronauts. It was found that the space around the blood vessels in the brain, which is filled with fluid, had changed.

Apart from this, passengers have to deal with many kinds of difficulties there. One of these is the problem of passing gas, which has now been disclosed.
