International Space Station smells awful because astronauts fart more in space

They could blame it on the face mites as well.

In space, no one can hear you fart......

This is precisely why bean burritos and matches are banned from the ISS. No one wants to be the cause of the exploding fart heard 'round the world.

They should just roll down the window. Oh…wait

Maybe they're just passing through a belt of debris from Uranus.

@LeDud - maybe not, but they can all smell it.

Could this be due to briefs full of fast-growing dairy-free cheese ..?

I thought it smelled like burnt meat out there?

In whose general direction?

Isn't Space Goat Farts a temporal marker? Disclosure coming in August?

No Dave, they can't do it outside. If they did, it would propel the ISS out of its proper orbit.

They need to control the methane emmisions above the atmosphere because this could lead to gerbil worming.

Outtake from 2001: A Space Odyssey
Dave: Open the pod bay doors, HAL. It stinks in here.
HAL: stifling a giggle: I'm sorry, Dave. I'm afraid I can't do .. BWA HA HA HA. Sorry, Mr. Kubrick - let's do that again.

They're gonna need a lot more baking soda.

Highly amusing! @ed in texas
