Here's a short article in the Times describing the smell of outer space and explaining why company Omega Ingredients is working on recreating it for Nasa. The guy in charge of the project is Steven Pearce who confesses to stumbling upon the problem of offering a well-crafted dupe for the scent of hot metal.

"Outer space smells like hot metal, fried steak and the welding of a motorbike, scientists suggest. A chemist is recreating the smell to help Nasa to train its astronauts."
