What Would Space Sound Like? Nasa’s Video Clip Leaves Netizens In Wonderment

“Space sounds exactly like how it looks” wrote a netizen after the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) shared a short clip on the NASAHubble Instagram page. 

The Instagram page, managed by NASA Goddard Space Flight Centre, shared a post that was a video captured by the Hubble Space Telescope, a project of international cooperation between NASA and European Space Agency (ESA). 

The fascinating post showcases their data sonification project, wherein, NASA transforms data related to celestial bodies into mesmerising sounds. This post is about the galaxy cluster Abell 370.

“Several hundred galaxies reside within the core of galaxy cluster Abell 370, located approximately 4 billion light-years away from Earth. In this sonification, sound waves are generated based on the brightness and position of the cosmic objects in the image. Brighter light is converted into louder sound, and the frequency increases from the bottom to the top of the image. Credits: NASA/Hubble; Sonification: @SYSTEMSounds (M. Russo, A. Santaguida)”, NASA wrote on their Instagram post.

As NASA explains, the sound waves are generated based on the brightness and position of the cosmic objects in the image. Meaning, brighter light is converted into louder sound, and the frequency increases from the bottom to the top of the image.
