Reminds me a bit of the "strange" sounds that
have been reported around the world, yet it is also
eerily similar to whale songs.


Here you go something outside the box..

What if whales aren't really native to Earth?



Space whales?


On a more serious note, whales do make sounds we can not hear,
the frequencies beyond our range. If I recall, those sounds
have been analyzed by the military, maybe NASA also?

Better than science fiction.



NASA’s Voyager 1 spacecraft exited the vast bubble of particles that encircles the sun and planets on August 25, 2012, mission scientists report September 12 in Science. At the time, Voyager was about 18.2 billion kilometers from the sun, or nearly 122 times as far from the sun as Earth.

“This is the beginning of a new era of exploration for us,” says Edward Stone of Caltech, who has headed the Voyager mission since 1972. “For the first time, we are exploring interstellar space.”

Confirmation of Voyager’s interstellar exploits came after determining that the probe is surrounded by a relatively dense fog of galactic particles rather than a thin mist of solar ones. It was a tricky measurement that required patience, clever detective work and a heavy dose of luck.

NASA launched Voyager 1 and 2 in 1977 to explore the outer planets, but from the beginning Stone’s team hoped the probes would survive long enough to investigate the region of space where our star’s dominance finally wanes. The sun unleashes a flood of hot, charged particles called plasma that jets out in all directions. The plasma forms a bubble called the heliosphere that is tens of billions of kilometers in diameter. Over the last decade, the solar plasma around Voyager 1 has thinned as the spacecraft hurtles toward the edge of the bubble at more than 60,000 kilometers per hour. Astronomers have been waiting for Voyager to cross this boundary — the heliopause, where solar particles give way to even speedier particles ejected by other stars — and enter interstellar space.

The first evidence that Voyager had reached that boundary appeared on July 28, 2012, when the number of solar particles measured by Voyager plummeted. But the particle count rebounded a few days later. Three similar dips and recoveries occurred in the following weeks until August 25, when solar particles disappeared for good (SN Online: 6/27/13). The solar particle measurement, combined with a surge in higher-energy particles from other stars, suggested that Voyager had exited the heliosphere and reached the promised land. Several well-publicized studies made that claim

This type of sound was heard back in 2012.

From the link on OP.


Scientists first encountered this crazy sounding interstellar plasma back in August 2012. That’s right: This is what it sounds like in interstellar space. Be amazed.


Here's a thread I made about it in December 2012.

www.abovetopsecret.com...

www.nasa.gov...


Since December 2004, when Voyager 1 crossed a point in space called the termination shock, the spacecraft has been exploring the heliosphere's outer layer, called the heliosheath. In this region, the stream of charged particles from the sun, known as the solar wind, abruptly slowed down from supersonic speeds and became turbulent. Voyager 1's environment was consistent for about five and a half years. The spacecraft then detected that the outward speed of the solar wind slowed to zero.
The intensity of the magnetic field also began to increase at that time.
Voyager data from two onboard instruments that measure charged particles showed the spacecraft first entered this magnetic highway region on July 28, 2012. The region ebbed away and flowed toward Voyager 1 several times. The spacecraft entered the region again Aug. 25 and the environment has been stable since.
"If we were judging by the charged particle data alone, I would have thought we were outside the heliosphere," said Stamatios Krimigis, principal investigator of the low-energy charged particle instrument, based at the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory, Laurel, Md. "But we need to look at what all the instruments are telling us and only time will tell whether our interpretations about this frontier are correct."


www.nasa.gov...


New and unexpected data indicate Voyager 1 has been traveling for about one year through plasma, or ionized gas, present in the space between stars. Voyager is in a transitional region immediately outside the solar bubble, where some effects from our sun are still evident.

The plasma wave science team reviewed its data and found an earlier, fainter set of oscillations in October and November 2012. Through extrapolation of measured plasma densities from both events, the team determined Voyager 1 first entered interstellar space in August 2012.
"We literally jumped out of our seats when we saw these oscillations in our data -- they showed us the spacecraft was in an entirely new region, comparable to what was expected in interstellar space, and totally different than in the solar bubble," Gurnett said. "Clearly we had passed through the heliopause, which is the long-hypothesized boundary between the solar plasma and the interstellar plasma."
The new plasma data suggested a timeframe consistent with abrupt, durable changes in the density of energetic particles that were first detected on Aug. 25, 2012. The Voyager team generally accepts this date as the date of interstellar arrival. The charged particle and plasma changes were what would have been expected during a crossing of the heliopause.

Filledcup,

Thanks for the link to your thread, will check it out.

As with the more recent discoveries of The Schuman Resonance,
I think we have a long ways to go in understanding the connections.



Sound man.. sound create vibration, vibration create border, border constrict space into energy, light formed.. matter formed out of light by various frequencies defining different borders in subatomic structure, man was made from the atoms.. evolution took place after all the first of each creature was created by the Supreme Consciousness and change according to their environment programmed by nature (inherent, innate protocols/characteristics)

all in the bible. there is more.

The problem here, is that sound is vibration within a medium such as air or water. In space, there is no medium for sound waves to pass through. There is no such thing as the sound of space, since space has no sound.

So how can vibration form borders in space? There is nothing there... nothing to vibrate. Vibration causes form and shape in matter, in a vacuum there is no matter, so what is being vibrated in order to form borders?

How can matter form out of light? All the light in the universe is produced BY matter. What you are suggesting has the old chicken or the egg thing going on. In order for light to exist, there needs to be something emitting light. That something emitting light is matter in the form of stars and other celestial events.

So if you need matter to produce light, how can all the matter be produced by light?

I made a search but used different terms, so did not find it.

Thumbs up! S&F also.

no it didn't, i think nasa is trying to excuse them self's... I hope they didn't spend allot of money in their celebration... Its a rule, a physical law, when an object leaves a solar system and enters another state, the magnetic field changes. But it didn't... and it won't lol

even the articles state it, many scientists, have doubts... And they also state clear, that the information about the magnetic field is being ignored by nasa.. I think, they try to save the thing...(as news)

It sort of did in 2012 when it entered a ''magnetic highway''.

See this thread, this is when it is now considered that Voyager 1 entered interstellar space, on August 25th 2012.

This 'magnetic highway' differed to the expected hypothesis, I guess science is always learning and knowledge evolves as more information and truths are known.

Sounds so much like "sky sounds", it wouldn't surprise me if we the sky sounds were actually these. That or maybe billions of years ago a universe sized hyper advanced society that mastered the physical realms then became spiritual and that blip of sound is the entire sound of their billions of years of history all at once as they ascend to the spiritual plane.

but it didnt change... it become more dense.. And that happen when it was traveling near the heliosphere... And its the same thing since, that means is trapped. Also two weeks ago, they said that voyager is trapped in a barrier and is going back and forth... lol

I think they try to kill it with hurray news.

Sound does not travel through space, and unless there is evidence somewhere that our atmosphere is capable of translating radio signals into audible sound, there doesn't seem to be much evidence linking the sky sounds to radio signals from space.

Just maybe there are unknown forces outside the Solar System holding it there, or even variances in the proposed theory of how it should look, magnetically, and in other ways when entering interstellar space. Perhaps Quantum Mechanics is called for and it has entered another dimension. Now that would be interesting!

But.. But.. But.. There is No Sound in Space !


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.

In the location where the Voyager 1 is currently traversing, there is ample interstellar plasma for this actually. Space is not "completely" empty....at least not yet where Voyager 1 is located.

Very true that space isn't totally empty, but that still doesn't support the claim that the odd "sky sounds" are coming from space, which is what my post was in reply to.

If there were actual sound waves passing through space, in order to reach Earth, there would need to be a continuous path of tightly packed enough matter leading from the source of the sound all the way to our Planet. That is not the case, so it cannot be happening.

Radio signals have no problem traveling through vacuum and can reach us here on Earth, but as I said before there is no evidence that radio signals from space are capable of causing audible sound here on Earth.

Agreed....I misunderstood you comment. Thanks for clarifying.


ETA: I wonder if it's possible that the Earths magnetic filed lines, being pushed around by the solar wind, and "snapping back" might act like a vibrating string, the Earth's atmosphere being connected to the magnetic field (assumption) could act as a resonance chamber for the vibration. That vibration, is converted to sound in the vibrating atmosphere (like the sound post in a violin).

If I recall correctly, during one of the peaks of the "sky" sounds there were a
few experts who weighed in on that, I am going to try and find the posts.

They said something to the effect "this should not be happening" lol.

Experts, yah....be amazed.

Heh no problem, I thought perhaps you thought I was just being a nitpicky wanker by saying there is no sound in space, so I figured I'd clarify


It is an interesting theory and I'd love to see some legitimate research into it. It does seem to me that it's possible for those interactions to cause some sort effect, I just haven't seen any evidence that leads me to believe it's actually happening.

I live in country and some say, I live in the middle of woods. To me it sounds like the the sounds I sometimes hear when the winds blow through the trees on a really windy day. It is really exciting and exhilarating some times to sit on the porch and listen to the wind calls through the trees and watch the trees dance. Sometimes it actually seems they are communicating in some mystic primeval way.

I believe they are referring to analog EM signals (like radio waves and other radiation) converted into sound frequencies that can be heard through a speaker or headset.

I have some WAVE files of Earth protonic whistlers and Jovian cyclotron emissions that are very alien sounding.

They have actual sound recordings of the atmosphere as the vehicles are entering it, not what we are talking about though.
