The smell of rain

Huffington Post Science has a video and article about how the smell of rain gets into the air.  It is called “petrichor”.  We call it “wet earth”.  Knowing about it has been around for quite a while, but now you can see the actual droplets flying up into the air in the video.

Enjoy
