Fun Fact

"New car smell" is the scent of dozens of chemicals.

Few odors are as pleasing as "new car smell"—and not just because it's nice to be in a brand new car. But while the scent may be strangely satisfying, the fact is that it's pretty much just a combination of 50+ chemicals (known as "volatile organic compounds") that are released into the car, decaying quickly over time. The concentrations found in a typical new car aren't dangerous, but among the VOCs that make up much of that new car smell are those found in nail polish, auto fuel, and petroleum.

History Fact

Famous Eponym

Black Hawk helicopters are named for Black Hawk, a Sauk Native American leader who fought for the British in the War of 1812. So are the Chicago Blackhawks, after a fashion—the team’s first owner was in a military division named after the Sauk warrior.
