LISTEN: This is what a black hole sounds like

Scientists have converted the movement of black hole X-rays into sounds for the first time and the results are incredible.

Black holes are already pretty spooky, but now they’ve been given a new feature… sound. While the cosmic bodies have always had sound, this is the first time it has been reproduced by scientists to please our curiosity.

The sounds comes from a phenomena referred to as an “echo”. But echos are a bit different for black holes.

Black holes release X-rays as they mindlessly consume everything in their path. Those X-rays are then reflected off the material that it has mindlessly consumed, which results in an “echo”.
