Scientists have determined the sound of the sun 2023

In case you were wondering, yes, the sun does make a noise; however, scientists have now determined what the sun sounds like.

Solar physicists at Stanford University have determined the solar surface noise of the sun by recording acoustical pressure waves in the sun with an instrument called the Michelson Doppler Imager. The results of their research indicate that the solar surface noise is quite noisy.

According to the American Academy of Audiology, the volume of the noises, which have been described as sounding like “screaming sirens,” would increase by 100 decibels by the time they arrived at our location on Earth if they were allowed to travel across space.

Scientists have heard the sun.

This amounts to tens of thousands of watts of energy created per meter on the sun, which is equivalent to ten times to one hundred times the power of speakers at a rock concert.

On the other hand, people living on Earth are unable to hear any of this because the sound waves that are being emitted have frequencies that are too low for the human ear to discern.

The continual movement of hot material towards the surface of the sun, along with the gradual movement of cooled material toward its core, results in the production of audible noise.
