(If you don’t get the reference, you need to spend more time with Ridley Scott movies) but that doesn’t mean that sound doesn’t exist in the vacuum of the universe.

I quote: “Astronomers discovered that pressure waves sent out by the black hole caused ripples in the cluster’s hot gas that could be translated into a note — one that humans cannot hear some 57 octaves below middle C.”
Chris Cornell would have loved this. Meanwhile, you can bet that Matt Bellamy is already working on sampling this for his next song about supermassive black holes.
Here’s another example.
