The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) published an audio recording taken from a black hole in the center of the Perseus group of galaxies, which is 250 million light-years away from Earth. Scientists have indicated that this “scary” sound resembles the tunes of the international musician Hans Zimmer.
According to the British “Sky News” network, these sound waves from the black hole were detected in the data recorded by NASA’s Chandra X-ray Space Telescope.
Commenting on this audio recording, NASA said: “There is a common misconception that there is no sound in space, based on the fact that since most of space is a vacuum, there is no medium through which sound waves propagate.”
She added: “Peresos galaxy clusters contain abundant amounts of gas that encase hundreds or even thousands of them. This gas provides a medium for the transmission of sound waves.
And NASA explained that the captured sound waves were processed to match the human hearing range by “raising the sound level to 57 and 58 octaves above the true pitch.”
The scientists pointed out that the audio recording sounds “scary” and that it resembles the melodies of Hans Zimmer, the international musician who composed the soundtracks for a large number of science fiction films.
