“We don’t have straightforward ways to look inside the Sun. We don’t have a microscope to zoom inside the Sun, so using a star or the Sun’s vibrations allows us to see inside of it.”Alex Young
“The Sun is not silent. The low, pulsing hum of our star’s heartbeat allows scientists to peer inside, revealing huge rivers of solar material flowing around before their eyes — er, ears. NASA heliophysicist Alex Young explains how this simple sound connects us with the Sun and all the other stars in the universe. This piece features low frequency sounds of the Sun. For the best listening experience, listen to this story with headphones.”
