NASA has turned a Hubble Telescope photo into music. Listen.

In space, no one can hear you sing. But you can transpose various vibrations from the cosmos into frequencies that humans can hear.

NASA has taken a deep space image taken by the Hubble Space Telescope and “sonified” it. Each speck is a galaxy and each galaxy contains hundreds of millions if not billions of stars.

Compact galaxies make short clear sounds. The tones from spiral galaxies are more complex.

Very, very cool. Also very, very eerie.
