The National Aeronautics and Space Administration, NASA has released an audio clip that represents the actual black holes sound at the centre of the Perseus galaxy cluster, which is more than 200m light years away.
The professional body released the audio clip, Sunday via a tweet which cleared the air on the misconception that there is no sound in space.
The misconception that there is no sound in space originates because most space is a ~vacuum, providing no way for sound waves to travel. A galaxy cluster has so much gas that we've picked up actual sound. Here it's amplified, and mixed with other data, to hear a black hole! pic.twitter.com/RobcZs7F9e— NASA Exoplanets (@NASAExoplanets) August 21, 2022

According to reports, NASA first released the Black holes sound in May through its Chandra X-ray Observatory while describing it as a result of pressure waves sent out by the black hole.
In a statement, the agancy said it was a whopping 57 octaves below middle C, which means scientists had to raise the frequency quadrillions of times to make it audible.
“Astronomers discovered that pressure waves sent out by the black hole caused ripples in the cluster’s hot gas that could be translated into a note — one that humans cannot hear some 57 octaves below middle C.”
However, upon it’s latest release of the audio clip on Sunday, the internet has gone agog with many describing it as a cosmic growl or an ominous wind tunnel, saying it sounded exactly how they imagined a supermassive black hole sound to be.
