Bacterial byproducts may help stop the stink in future spacesuits


Pink stuff

Depends on your local water supply and probably your cleaning regime what grows on your surfaces. The pink stuff is produced by (the Bacterium Formerly Known As) Serratia marcescens, which is an occasional pathogen, so I can see an allergy problem coming up here if you start putting it on your skin.

Think I'll wait for space travel to get to Business Class comfort rather than Backpacker before I sign up!
