In space, no one can hear you scream. But Something is screaming... Kinda

Then Voyager I’s plasma wave instrument has detected something new. Something alien (not invasion alien, just new-to-us alien). Between October 2012 and May 2013 it recorded two instances of interstellar plasma — vibrations causing sound. They say the sounds are frequencies within human hearing....Evidently space is like the ocean as far as weird sounds go, only you have to be in a plasma cloud to hear them....

That's no cloud of plasma, that's a four dimensional space whale.

I thought the plasma sensor is broken on voyager.
How are they using an instrument that's broken?


Voyager 1 does not have a working plasma sensor, so scientists needed a different way to measure the spacecraft's plasma environment to make a definitive determination of its location. A coronal mass ejection, or a massive burst of solar wind and magnetic fields, that erupted from the sun in March 2012 provided scientists the data they needed. When this unexpected gift from the sun eventually arrived at Voyager 1's location 13 months later, in April 2013, the plasma around the spacecraft began to vibrate like a violin string. On April 9, Voyager 1's plasma wave instrument detected the movement. The pitch of the oscillations helped scientists determine the density of the plasma. The particular oscillations meant the spacecraft was bathed in plasma more than 40 times denser than what they had encountered in the outer layer of the heliosphere. Density of this sort is to be expected in interstellar space.

Looks like the sound is the vibrations caused by the plasma cloud.

The more we learn the more we realise that empty space is NOT empty!

Anyone know at what speed the craft is travelling at?

Space is empty?

Where are we then?

Umm... no? Maybe you're not using the right terminology... it's a vacuum.

No air, you see.

Its 36 years old. Its traveled 12 billion miles.



365 * 36 = 13140

12,000,000,000 / 13140 = 913242.0091324201

Roughly 913'000 miles a day


913242.0091324201 / 24 = 38051.7503805175

OR 38k mph

Unless my math is flawed? looks good from here.

Traveling at speeds of over 35,000 miles per hour, it will take the Voyagers nearly 40,000 years, and they will have traveled a distance of about two light years to reach...... more nothingness....

Well, some of us are on this planet.
As your obviously having a problem I'll explain. Ya know those big gaps between the planets an stuff? Ah! I see you do, you called it a vacuum. Well some folks have always believed there's nothing in that vacuum, but as we learn more we're discovering its not as empty as we thought.

Sorry if I hurt your brain with my poor terminology.
