The Hubble has helped to reproduce the music of the Universe.
In space is impossible the transmission of sound waves because of the vacuum. But this did not prevent NASA researchers to convey the music of the Universe. The researchers turned one of the most amazing pictures of telescope “Hubble” received in 2018, in the likeness of a musical composition, where each point plays the role of music, according to the Chronicle.info with reference for Today.
Because of the huge number of galaxies fit in the frame, the researchers called the photo “a chest of galactic treasures.” According to them, that each spot of the galaxy is home to billions of stars.
The team that turns the picture into a musical composition, explained that each point in the image produces its own sound. Stars and small galaxies respond to short notes, and large spiral galaxies give longer and more complex sounding sounds. Their tone depends on the location – the lower they are, the rougher sound the note.
The resulting composition may seem creepy, but if you listen, in the middle you can hear a pretty distinct melody. According to researchers, the reason for this is the closest cluster of galaxies – this area is called the RXC J0142.9 + 4438.
