Does the Planet Mars smell like rotten eggs or...a sewer?

Experts say that the entire planet could stink.

Sulphur or Methane?


Based on the make-up of the planet and atmosphere, researchers have concluded that Mars smells like rotten eggs.



But since no human has directly visited any of these planets, how do we know how they smell? Researchers use a range of methods, including studying their chemical composition and using techniques such as spectroscopy, which detects individual wavelengths of light emitted by particular molecules. Hydrogen, oxygen, methane, nitrogen etc. all have their own unique light-emitting fingerprints. So when researchers look at sunlight bouncing off planetary atmospheres, they can match these fingerprints to their corresponding gas, learning not just which gasses are in the atmosphere, but also their abundance.


Although astronauts obviously won't take off their helmets outside, the "stink" of Mars may obviously seep a little into habitats and bases, no?

Stanley Kubrick told the NASA astronauts to say that the Moon smelled like gunpowder.

Eventually get use to it. I was working for a few weeks near a pogie bait factory where they chop up fish for bait, pet food....awful. Couple time I had to stop my car to gag. It was that disgusting.

After a a week or so I got use to it. I imagine the people there did as well. Same goes for those who clean out portable toilets.

I bet Earth has a smell as well. Going to Mars and returning here, I bet it would be like going on vacation, returning home and having to experience the smell of your house again.

"Mars smells like sewage?!?!"...

"Stupid Earthlings... Now, where did I leave that Illudium Q-36 Explosive Space Modulator??"

I dont know about the smell but the true natural landscape color of the planet has been hidden for years from the public.
