I have noticed quite an influx of these "Strange Sounds" threads popping up and decided to try and help eliminate one of the alleged culprits.

Through reading I have discovered that a number of replies in these threads are claiming that these could be sounds coming from space. I would like to help clarify a little on that particular topic.

Here is a University of Iowa link that has a number of sounds from space

Sounds of Space


We can hear the sounds of space by using scientific instruments on spacecraft as our 'ears.' Scientific instruments detect and record radio waves, then transmit the recorded information to Earth. Once the transmitted information has been received at Earth, the data are processed for use in scientific studies. This processing also allows data to be converted or translated into sounds.


So as you can see, actual audible sound is not being recorded, here's why...




Is there sound in space? (Photo and following excerpt source)

Sound travels in waves like light or heat does, but unlike them, sound travels by making molecules vibrate. So, in order for sound to travel, there has to be something with molecules for it to travel through. On Earth, sound travels to your ears by vibrating air molecules. In deep space, the large empty areas between stars and planets, there are no molecules to vibrate. There is no sound there.


So I can say with about 99.99% assurance that these sounds are occurring on a terrestrial level be it above or below, nonetheless whatever is making the sound is right here on Earth. I will say the phenomena is rather interesting and I am quite intrigued by the speculated upon sources thus far.

Perhaps the sounds are coming from the space between the hearers ears.

You can listen to conversions of light into sound with Metasynth. Listen to your favorite picture.

It's really basically the same thing, a conversion.

Obviously the sound isn't coming from space, but that doesn't mean the energy isn't. Something on the ground, or in the atmosphere itself, could be converting radio waves into sound. Like how you can occasionally hear meteors that give off low frequency radiation.

Indeed, a frequency converted into sound. I did however go through some of the sounds albeit a frequency to see if I could find any similar to the ones being posted in these videos. I wasn't able to find any that correlated though.

Not to seem arrogant at all, or ignorant depending, but how does one hear radiation without the means of some device to convert the frequency to sound?

You can't. That's why I said you need something on the ground to convert it. People hear meteors. It's very rare but all I'm saying is the phenomena is possible.

Agreed, but not in the conventional sense, equipment is required as you stated. I posted this thread because there was a few apparent misconceptions in regards to an actual audible sound coming from space and possibly being the root cause for these mysterious sounds as of late.

I didn't want to quote specifically from those threads so I decided to take this approach and just offer the information in the OP.

There are no sounds in space

And just to make sure: there are no sounds in space. As the OP says, sound cannot travel in a vacuum.

The 'sounds' we are presented with are actually radio signals (electromagnetic radiation of different wavelengths) that have been picked up by radio telescopes and other antennas and converted into sound in much the same way that your car radio picks up radio signals and converts them into sound.

Sound can only exist where there is matter to propagate it. Inside a spaceship, or on a planet, there will be plenty of sound. But there are no sounds in space.

Safe to say we can rule this out as any cause I believe.

If more we will call them particals are entering the friction from them interacting with existing or native atmospheric particals would produce a cosmic sound from the -collisions- 1 doesnt know for sure whats going on for all many know it could be the ARCs*

1 Thessalonians 4:16-17
New International Version (NIV)

16 For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. 17 After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever.

Perhaps there is something is space but not very much on the full atomic level
and only carry waves of high vibration like light. Space could be dense with a very fine matter.
A transformer would be needed to talk which obviously is a radio.

something in space


From what we currently know there is nothing in space within the "space" that sound would have to travel, it's a vacuum. This is probably why they called it "space"


Sound is a mechanical wave, light and radio waves are Electromagnetic...


Electromagnetic versus Mechanical Waves

Another way to categorize waves is on the basis of their ability or inability to transmit energy through a vacuum (i.e., empty space). Categorizing waves on this basis leads to two notable categories: electromagnetic waves and mechanical waves.



A mechanical wave is a wave that is not capable of transmitting its energy through a vacuum. Mechanical waves require a medium in order to transport their energy from one location to another. A sound wave is an example of a mechanical wave. Sound waves are incapable of traveling through a vacuum. Slinky waves, water waves, stadium waves, and jump rope waves are other examples of mechanical waves; each requires some medium in order to exist. A slinky wave requires the coils of the slinky; a water wave requires water; a stadium wave requires fans in a stadium; and a jump rope wave requires a jump rope.

An electromagnetic wave is a wave that is capable of transmitting its energy through a vacuum (i.e., empty space). Electromagnetic waves are produced by the vibration of charged particles. Electromagnetic waves that are produced on the sun subsequently travel to Earth through the vacuum of outer space. Were it not for the ability of electromagnetic waves to travel to through a vacuum, there would undoubtedly be no life on Earth. All light waves are examples of electromagnetic waves.


Physics Classroom

With what you mention, I believe you may be referring to resonance perhaps? In that there could be some wave causing a resonating effect?


Resonance is when objects with the same natural frequency as the vibrating source also begin to vibrate. Resonance does not happen very often and only affects the object close to the vibrating source. Sometimes, the effects of resonance can be powerful. A singer can make glass vibrate enough to shatter, just by singing a note with the glass’s natural frequency!


Frequency and Pitch

Let's hope Earth is not the glass

We are told by a standard model there is nothing in space.
There must be fine matter to transmit light and radio waves.
The density of space fixes light and radio waves travel at the rate of c.
The source being a voltage disturbance.
So empty space is responsive to voltage?
No. The fine matter everywhere is responsive to voltage.
A radio wave length can be a mile long.
How can the wave be a mile away so quick?
Voltage in the atom or in wire creates the light or radio wave.
What about all the space in a atom.
Is that empty.
We are taught the standard model and any student of science
knows that and in fact and tosses that out to discover something new.
Space noise is everywhere:

What about 50X the speed of light particles.
We have them now or still none in the standard model.
Billions and billions of 50X SOL particles means we live in a very
active environment. The standard model wishes not to go there.
Transforming their energy is too hard to find a transformer.
Yet some have been found. But they are not standard.
ED: Wonder how a candle makes noise. Atom activity in the
flame. Moving the candle makes a wave in the fine matter.
