Astronomy Science ~ Like what smells comet 67P / C-G? It turns out this comet very foul odor. If this comet can be brought to the Earth, you will smell like rotten eggs, horse piss, alcohol and bitter almonds, according to European scientists.

A device mounted on the Rosetta spacecraft has detected some traces of chemical molecules of interest from comet 67P / Churyumov-Gerasimenko since their meeting in space in August, they said.

The molecules include ammonia, methane, hydrogen sulfide, hydrogen cyanide and formaldehyde.

A device called Rosina-DFMS is jejakjejak mass spectrometer analyzed the gases released by "coma," the head of the comet, as comets close against the sun.

"Aroma comet 67P / CG is quite strong, with the smell of rotten eggs (hydrogen sulfide), urinary horse (ammonia) and the sharp smell of formalin and suffocating smell of formalin," said Kathrin Altwegg, chief scientist Rosina instrument.

"It is also mixed with a faint odor and bitter almond aroma (hydrogen cyanide).

"Add also some smell methanol to this mixture, paired with a smell like vinegar (sulfur dioxide) and a slightly sweet aroma (carbon disulfide).

Detect so many different molecules at this stage has been a surprise, says ESA.
Rosina team believes that only the most volatile molecules -Carbon dioxide and carbon monoksida- be issued when the comet began to warm.

Currently the comet 67P / CG is about 400 million kilometers from the sun. Rosetta rides will be lowering the robot lander, Philae, on November 12 to conduct scientific tests on the surface of the comet.

On August 13 next year, and the Rosetta comet will be within 185 million kilometers from the Sun, it is their closest approach by our star.
