Can we hear sounds in space? Now you’ve probably heard that there’s no sound in space, but technically that’s not true.
Yes, space is a virtual vacuum, almost empty. However, sound does exist in the form of electromagnetic vibrations that pulsate in similar wavelengths.
NASA Space Sounds:
Some spacecraft have instruments capable of capturing radio emissions. What you’re hearing is the result of scientists’ conversion of these radio emissions to sound waves. Instruments on NASA’s Voyager, INJUN 1, ISEE 1 and HAWKEYE space probes were used to record the vibrations of different objects in our solar system.
The recorded sounds are the complex interactions of charged electromagnetic particles from the solar wind, ionisphere, and planetary magnetosphere.
The space sounds are really amazing, music legend Hans Zimmer would be jealous of. Nothing was added or tweaked either, these are the beautiful sounds which emanate from that mysterious world above and beyond.
