The Hubble Telescope of the American space agency NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) shared a video from its data sniffing project on its official Instagram page.
As part of the project, NASA converts space object information into hypnotic sound. The sonication sequence of the Galaxy Cluster Abel 370 is the most recent, and has left Internet users speechless.
“Hundreds of galaxies are located at the core of the galaxy cluster Abel 370, about 4 billion light-years from Earth. In this sonication, sound waves are generated based on the brightness and position of cosmic objects in the image. The frequency increases upwards, ”NASA said in a caption.
In two days, the post has been viewed more than 6.4 million times on Instagram.
One user commented, “Space sounds just like it looks.”
“Beautiful and scary,” says the second user.
“Okay that’s not just pretty scary,” added another.
Astronomers have observed a curious pressure while imaging the Abel 370 galaxy cluster. The pressure was not immediately recognized – it took higher photographs to reveal that it was a kind of astrophysical artifact unseen before a gravitational lens, where the lens was at the center of an entire cluster of galaxies.
By studying Abel 370 and its images, astronomers can see galaxy clusters and the distribution of normal and dark matter in the universe.
