Yup! Beleive it or not, this e-Nose developed by NASA can tell if the cells of a brain are cancerous or not!! WHOA …

“NASA’s recently developed electronic nose, intended for air quality monitoring on Space Shuttle Endeavour and later the International Space Station, has a rather fortunate and unintended secondary role. In addition to being able to detect contaminants within about one to 10,000 parts per million, scientists have discovered it can also sniff out the difference in odor between normal and cancerous brain cells” – Ross Miller, Engdaget
