VIVA – The National Aeronautics and Space Administration or NASA has officially released an audio clip of sound waves emitting from a supermassive black hole that located 250 million light years from Earth.

The acoustic waves of the black hole or black hole at the center of the Perseus galaxy cluster have been changed to 57 and 58 octaves. So, they can be heard by human hearing.

According to the Science Alert page, Wednesday, August 24, 2022, the results were released by NASA in May, like an unnatural and spooky howl to listen.

This is the first-time sound waves have been extracted and made audible. In 2003, astronomers detected something truly astonishing, acoustic waves propagating through the vast amounts of gas surrounding the supermassive black hole at the center of the Perseus galaxy cluster.

These waves are among the lowest pitches in the universe ever detected by humans, well below the limit of human hearing.

However, recent sonification has not only increased the recording by an octave, but also added the pitch detected from the black hole so we can get a feel for what it sounds like.
