You remember the Alien movie with the saying "In space ,no one can hear you scream"?

Well,a group of students are going to test that theory out.
There are looking for the best screams to send up on a micro satellite .


The first “Alien” movie was promoted with the celebrated tagline, “In space, no one can hear you scream.” But a group of students want to find out if this is really true, and they’re asking the public for help. Students from the University of Cambridge in the UK will be loading human screams onto a smartphone that will be launched into space in December 2012 on a nanosatellite. The screams will be played at maximum volume while the smartphone is in low Earth orbit, and at the same time as the phone will record the playback to test if it’s possible to capture the sound of screaming in space. They want the best screams possible, and so are inviting the public to submit their screams via video. There will also be public voting on the screams to determine which screams will go to space.

LOL they'll kind of be answering what sound does tree make when a tree falls when nobody is around to hear it theory of sorts?
I bet it is recorded though...I'm just guessing.

Could tie in to the alien agenda ........ the scream in "space" , attracting "visitors"

Air is needed for sound to travel. No air in space so no scream.

We know that,buster.


I just like that cool little satellite they made!

I totally agree with ya. That's also the basis for my theory that the big bang wasn't an actual "bang".

Alien stops by "this planet looks like a nice place"
*hears screams*
"....OK let's move on..*

Might be a stupid question, but unless the speaker and the mic are completely detached (as in two completely separate objects with no casing or even tethering), wont the mic pick up the vibrations of the speaker operating through that material?

I say,

Damn good question. I hope the brainiacs figured on that.

The way i see it the big bang is what the survivors called the nuclear war , they taught thier tribes about it who carried legends for years until the population was out of thier control and they started using education and religion to mask the truth and control the masses in an effort to rebuild thier world . Hence the bloodlines , and the hidden technology ... and the aliens angels demons vampires and witches of the past.

If there`s no air/oxygen in space wouldn`t any kind of fire be extinguished once it leaves the atmosphere and hits the oxygen starved "space" ?

however if it is a satellite in leo doesnt that mean there is still a very finite amount of atmosphere?

An excellent question.
Hope those students figured that one out,or they may lose a few grade points.

I was thinking the same thing.

If there is no matter to vibrate thus no means for sound waves to travel then how can there be sound?

You'd figure students with the intelligence to manufacture a decently advanced piece of machinery would be aware of this small detail...

I'm imagining the class hovering around their recovered experiment, nervous and tingling with the anticipation of the outcome, all ears pressing towards the device.

Team leader clicks "play".......silence ensues.....

Oooooh....ahhhh.....anticlimax!


Next time send a small ice cream maker and see if space ice cream tastes the same. Either way, at least when it's over there will be space ice cream!

As someone earlier said...the speaker is going to vibrate the phone, which will be recorded by the mic since it's part of the phone. It may not sound quite the same, but I'm fairly certain it will be recognizable.

Also, LEO is still close enough to be considered part of Earth's atmosphere. It's just not part of the dense layers associated with re-entry.

For this to be a really valid test (though the answer is pretty obvious anyway) they would want to send it a good deal higher and have a disconnected device attempt to record it.

Still, it's a neater Halloween-vibed bit of news than you typically hear about.
