In a galaxy far, far away....


250 million light years away, English astronomers have discovered the lowest sound waves ever detected by humans from an object. The sound waves, in the form of a single B flat drone, aren't from an alien planet. They are, in fact, from a "singing" black hole, located in the center of a galaxy cluster known as the Perseus Cluster.

This intriguing story can be found here at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center website.

  1. Maybe we should add a video of this black hole on this page?

  2. That's rad! We might have to commission "Black Hole in Bb" for the time being.
