NASA shares audio of ‘13 billion years' worth of data, urges people to explore galaxies through sound

·1 min read

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) always brings spectacular sights from across the universe to our small screens and leaves people mesmerised.

The agency, which always excites space enthusiasts by sharing photos and videos of the galaxy, recently posted a similar example which has become viral for all the good reasons.

NASA has encouraged people to experience stars and galaxies through senses via sonification (sound). In this process, the agency has captured the sound through sonification and shared it on social media. The data collected in this audio are done by different space telescopes which are later converted into sounds.

"You're listening to 13 billion years' worth of data. The galaxies in this Hubble Ultra Deep Field image from 2014 are represented in sound! We hear a note for each galaxy when it emitted the light captured in this image; the farther the galaxy, the longer it took for its light to reach Hubble," the agency captioned the post which is sure to leave people awestruck.

Recently, NASA also shared a closer look at a nearby star that resembles the Sun. This new find or discovery has made scientists think and understand what our Sun may have looked like when it was young. They might have also understood how the Sun has shaped the atmosphere with time.
