Belgian astronomers are looking for volunteers to listen to the stars
Astronomers from the Catholic University of Leuven (Belgium) have created a project and web portal with the sound name “Astra Sounds”. They believe that astronomy is the observation of stars, while stars with vibrations create sound like musical instruments. Scientists are looking for volunteers who will literally listen to the stars. This is the kind of experiment that determines the ability of the human ear to distinguish the sounds produced by stars. Volunteers would thus help discover and categorize new stars and constellations. https://www.astrosounds.be/
Scientists from the Catholic University of Leuven say that the stars vibrate like giant bells. The human ear cannot hear these vibrations. But the vibration can be seen by the change in light coming from the star. That light can later be turned into sound. So scientists believe it is possible to recognize stars. Scientists say the stars are giant gas balls. They have special characteristics that produce special sounds. By allowing more people (volunteers) to listen to different types of stars then scientists can discover the power of the human ear for data analysis.
