George Aldrich does the most unusual job that anyone can imagine! Learn here what’s that!
George Aldrich has worked for NASA for over 40 years, and his job is to smell things, according to spaceflight.nasa.gov.
Thanks to George Aldrich and his team of NASA sniffers, astronauts can breathe a little bit easier.
Aldrich is a chemical specialist or “chief sniffer” at the White Sands Test Facility’s Molecular Desorption and Analysis Laboratory in New Mexico. His job is to smell items before they can be flown in the space shuttle.
This is to ensure that there are no unpleasant smells on ISS and the shuttle. Oh and his nose also gets calibrated and tested every four months.
