NASA has turned a Hubble Space Telescope photo into music
While it’s true that space is generally a silent place, there are ways to extract sound from the cosmos in various ways. Everything from planets to black holes emit radiation that can be turned into audio that we can hear.
NASA likes to have fun “sonifying” the universe by interpreting pictures taken by the Hubble Space Telescope into things we can hear. The boffins took a deep space image of thousands of galaxies, each containing millions and perhaps billions of stars, and turn everything into music. (An explanation of how they did that can be found here.)
