NASA this week shared an audio clip on social media that allows you to “hear” a black hole. No surprise, the sound is terrifying.

NASA Exoplanets, a team at the agency focused on planets and other information outside our solar system, tweeted the 34-second clip on Sunday and said there’s a “misconception” that there is no sound in space.
But, the team explained, “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!”
NASA initially released the “sonification” earlier this year, explaining that researchers have “associated” the black hole in the Perseus galaxy cluster with sound since 2003.
