Is there sound in space? Now you’ve probably heard that there’s no sound in space, but technically that’s not true.
Now yes, space is a virtual vacuum. However, sound does exist in the form of electromagnetic vibrations that pulsate in similar wavelengths.
These waves can be converted into sound waves that we can hear. For example, some spacecraft are equipped with instruments that can convert radio waves emitted by planets and other celestial objects into sound, allowing us to “hear” the signals.
So while sound as we traditionally understand it does not exist in space, there are ways to “hear” the energy that exists there through technological means.
What NASA did was design special instruments that could record these electromagnetic vibrations, and transferred them into sounds that our ears could hear. What you’re about to hear is actual sound in space, nothing has been added. It’s a beautiful, yet haunting sound that music legend Hans Zimmer would be jealous of.
