Hi Guys! Brand new to the forum and believe me, I'm not here to teach but to learn. I have a couple of questions and I hope they don't sound too foolish. First question: When looking deep into space with the Hubble telescope we are able to see thousands of galaxies receding away to the limit of the Hubble's resolving power. Is/would the view be the similar regardless of where we point the telescope? Second: A couple of years ago I was listening to a radio show that featured an American astronaut that had visited the MIR space station. He commented that when an airlock was opened that had previously been open to space, he smelled an odor that was very similar to the ash from a fire that had burned out in a fire place. I haven't been able to stop thinking about that comment ever since. Is there an odor to space? Would it be caused by the sun?
