Podcast – Amy’s Everyday Astronomy: Strange sounds from Space

In space, no one can hear you scream.

While this is true, it doesn’t mean space is completely devoid of sound. Audio waves require a medium such as air in order to be heard.

However radio, and other, transmissions are still traveling the reaches of space, waiting to be recorded and played for whomever may be listening.

What I have for you today are some of the most notorious, and perhaps even unique recordings of sounds from space. I recommend listening with earbuds or a headset of some type for best quality.

However, if you choose to listen on the speakers of your laptop or other device, and you have animals around (like cats or dogs), some of the sounds can cause strange reactions in them.

If you’re interested in hearing the audio from the original source from which I got them, the links are provided below:
