Space Travel: Supended Hibernation with Rotten Egg Stink

Book Tip: Three Rotten Eggs The future of space travel could have been just invented. Scientists have put mice in suspended hibernation.

Researchers from the University of Washington and the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle put mice used air mixed with 80 parts per million of Hydrogen Sulphide (H2S) gas. This is the gas that gives rotten eggs their stinky smell.

This could also be a self defense mechanism when astronauts travel through the depths of space and encounter hostile aliens. If they aliens beam on the ship filled with rotten egg stink they sure leave immediately. Mankind will be known in the universe as the stinky space travelers.
