Impossible smells exhibition opens

As reported by, scent professionals of many stripes were tapped for the "extinct and impossible" smells exhibition at the Reg Vardy Gallery, University of Sunderland in the northeast of England. They've created a series of unique historical odors that would likely not exist naturally today. Scents include odors found a medieval plague doctor's first aid kit, the smell of the fallout from an atomic bomb, the sweaty stink of a space station, the bouquet of extinct flowers and more. I wish the exhibition was showing here in the northeast of the US as well. Update: Here's more from 24 Hour Museum.

I don;t think we'll find a lot of people testimony to verify some of those scents, such as nuclear fallout scent..

(And from 24 hour museum : Jesse Tafero was not exonerated. His guilt is still in doubt though.)
