Notes & Transcripts

As technology has grown, scientists have found that many objects in space create unique noises or songs. In August 2014, the European Space Agency’s Rosetta probe heard a ticking sound coming from a comet labeled 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimneko. As the comet approached the sun, it emitted what sounded like a long string of slowed-down, low-pitched dolphin clicks. The sound was unique compared with sounds from other comets, so they wanted to know what was creating the sound. Finally, they solved the mystery concluding the vibrations are set off by a stream of charged particles coming off of the surface of the rock. As they passed through the comet’s magnetic field, they create the ticking sound that can be picked up by nearby receivers.—Jim L. Wilson and Jim Sandell
