Skvortsov explained that "it is not pleasant, it is unusual and you cannot mistake it for any other smell." ? I thought that only metal smells like that, but after a departure from the teammates, the diving suits had that smell, "he explained.

"I don't know if there is a smell in the distant cosmos, but around the ISS it sure smells," he commented. The smell is comparable to that produced "when as a child you hit one granite stone against another."
