Data Sonification: Black Hole at the Center of Galaxy M87 (Multiwavelength)
Since 2003, the black hole at the center of the Perseus galaxy cluster has been associated with sound. Now a new sonification brings more notes to this black hole sound machine. This new sonification – that is, the translation of astronomical data into sound – is being released for NASA’s Black Hole Week this year.

Jingle, Pluck, and Hum: Sounds from Space - NASA
A “sonification” project led by NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory and NASA’s Universe of Learning program transforms otherwise inaudible data from some of the world’s most powerful telescopes into sound.

'X-ray Magnifying Glass' Enhances View of Distant Black Holes - NASA
A new technique using NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory has allowed astronomers to obtain an unprecedented look at a black hole system in the early Universe, as reported in our latest press release. This is providing a way for astronomers to look at faint and distant X-ray objects in more detail than had previously been possible.
