If there is life under the shroud of Saturn's moon Titan it might be both explosive and prone to the odd smell.

Dr William Bains commented on possible life on Titan - "Beam one onto the Starship Enterprise and it would boil and then burst into flames, and the fumes would kill everyone in range. Even a tiny whiff of its breath would smell unbelievably horrible."

"Bains is working to find out just how extreme the chemistry of life can be."
