he first time in 50 years, mysterious 'X-Files' sounds have been recorded from the edge of space. A helium balloon built by a student for a NASA project captured the eerie hisses and whistles 22 miles above the Earth's surface.

The bizarre noises were captured using equipment designed and built by Daniel Bowman, a graduate student at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, according to LiveScience.

The instruments recorded atmospheric infrasound – sound waves at frequencies below 20 hertz. Since infrasound is below human hearing range, the noises can only be heard when the recording is sped up.

"It sounds kind of like 'The X-Files,'" Bowman said. He added that the intensity of the sounds came as a shock, stating that he was “surprised by the sheer complexity of the signal.”


Audio of sound

Im pretty sure this was already posted. But if its a different one, I think it is still linked to our sun, bombarding earth with solar winds.

I cant help wonder what it sounds like when it is at its natural speed. I would imagine that speeding it up to hear it must distort it to some point or "change" its meaning or what have you.

Good article find. The article says that 20hz is too low for humans to hear though, it isn't for some. I live with "The Hum" phenomena and that is at 20hz or lower. I have had my hearing tested to rule out tinitus and the audiologist found I could hear 20hz sound quite well. She was a little shocked. I am near a 'Hum Cluster'. The Canadian government did a study to try to find a the source. They thought it might be am improperly calibrated industrial machine. The company fixed the machine but the "HUM' remained. Parts of the recording in the article sound like what I hear. That might be a partial explanation. I'd like to see if there is a version of that where it is not sped up.Thanks for posting that.

It is distorted sped up and sounds much higher in tone than it should.
