This is the sound of a supermassive black hole.


Black holes are poorly understood. These celestial bodies will be studied for centuries, but new scientific discoveries are made every year. Scientists were able to capture the sound of a black hole this spring.

A supermassive black hole at the center of a cluster of galaxies in the constellation Perseus “sings” so beautifully. It’s been studied for nearly two decades, and a soundtrack like this would fit any horror film set in hell released at the time.

Sound waves were converted into “music” using the Chandra space X-ray telescope.
