NASA’s Exoplanets Twitter account has unveiled audio where listeners can hear what a black hole from 200 million light-years away sounds like to the human ear.

The space agency also used the tweet to address the widely misunderstood notion that there is no sound among the stars.

They wrote:




The account is run by a team of scientists investigating exoplanets, or planetary orbs found outside of our solar system.

The cluster featured in the video is called Perseus, and the finding was initially released in May in honor of NASA’s Black Hole Week. The data was discovered by NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory.

NASA wrote in the release at the time:

Astronomers discovered that pressure waves sent out by the black hole caused ripples in the cluster’s hot gas that could be translated into a note — one that humans cannot hear some 57 octaves below middle C.
