NASA Has Managed To Record The Sound Of A Black Hole

Ever thought black holes produced sounds? Me neither. While many believed sound in space just wasn't possible, NASA has dispelled the myth, releasing a new video allowing us to hear what the black hole at the centre of the Perseus galaxy cluster sounds like.

And on another note...

So, NASA scientists would like for me to believe that they can construct the sounds of a Black Hole in a Galaxy Cluster 240 light years away...

...not buying it.  Not even...

That sound is definately eerie, but in the first link there is the sound of another black hole that sounds like beautiful music.

I think it's just the way they manipulate the sound. Like if you record your voice and slow it down you sound like Satan, but if you speed it up you sound like a fairy.

Is it the sound of the black hole or the matter/energy entering the black hole?   I dunno, just wondering.

This sounds like something Mike Oldfield wrote and composed.

Next they'll announce that they've also detected an odd smell emitting from the hole.

:P

I might be missing the point, but i didn't think you could hear sounds in space, i thought soundwaves didn't travel through space.

Looks to me like these are just sounds generated from images, Fruity Loops (FL studio) had such synth for years.

No, you cannot hear any sounds in near-empty regions of space. Sound travels through the vibration of atoms and molecules in a medium (such as air or water). In space, where there is no air, sound has no way to travel.

so .... perhaps sound can exist inside the black hole...(I don't see how) ...and no one has a way really to 'hear' them even if they did.  But they expect us to just believe everything they say.  smh

Maybe you should have first read the article.

Quote from the LadBible link:

"The popular misconception that there is no sound in space originates with the fact that most of space is essentially a vacuum, providing no medium for sound waves to propagate through.

"A galaxy cluster, on the other hand, has copious amounts of gas that envelop the hundreds or even thousands of galaxies within it, providing a medium for the sound waves to travel."

Interestingly, sound has been associated with this black hole since 2003, after astronomers discovered it sent out pressure waves that produced ripples in the cluster's hot gas. However, according to the space agency, the discovery indicated us humans aren't actually able to hear 57 octaves below middle C.
