Reading Task Sounds in Space

Sound in Space

List 3 interesting facts that you learned from the article:
1. There is no air in space
2.  Space is never noisy
3.  Vibrations can travel through solid things as well as air.

Why can’t we hear sound in space?
Because there is nothing for vibrations to travel through.

How did NASA record the sounds of interstellar space?
The data was stored on an old-fashioned tape recorder.

What does deep space sound like?
The sound of it sounds like Dawn Chorus of birds singing in spring from super bass.

What does the plasma wave detector detect? How do they turn this into sound?
It senses waves of electrons. Play the data through a loudspeaker and listen!
