Can you smell on the moon?

Can you smell on the moon if you took a piece of cheese for example, or do all the particles diffuse too quickly?
Abbey Wesson from Devon (Aged 15-25)

  1. Unfortunately you cannot smell stuff on the moon, in the sense that there is no medium (air) that would allow the intake of molecules through your nostrils. The moon has no atmosphere, and the vacuum existing there is so good, that any air molecule that happen to be in your lungs will swiftly escape from your body into space. And of course, those cheese particles will escape (in a ballistic trajectory) too quickly. They will not diffuse though, as there is nothing there for them to collide with.
