Sound In Space!

Sounds in Space

List 3 interesting facts that you learned from the article:
1. In space there is no air, so if you say anything no one will hear you.
2. Sounds are caused when something vibrates.
3. Vibrations can travel through solids things as well as air.

Why can’t we hear sound in space?

Because space is a place of silence and there is also no air and also nothing for the vibration to travel through.

How did NASA record the sounds of interstellar space?
The data was stored on an old fashioned tape recorder!

What does deep space sound like?
it’s like Dawn Chorus of birds singing in spring from super bass!

What does the plasma wave detector detect? How do they turn this into sound?
It senses waves of electrons. Play the data through a loudspeaker and listen.
