I'm not sure if it's been discussed here before but these news just appeared yesterday.

Brian May and Tangerine Dream wrote two songs and dedicated them to Yuriy Gagarin and Alexey Leonov.  There will be a scientific-musical festival which will take its place on the Canary Islands at June 20-25.

I think everybody knows that yesterday there were right 50 years after the day when Yuriy Gagarin flew to the space.

In these two songs they're gonna use the real sounds that are made by stars in the cosmos!

Too True, there's no sound within the vacuum of space,  But would a star's solar flares, give off a noise??  The reason, I ask is,  Earth is in space & we have noise on it due to having an atmostphere & not being under a vacuum here, is that because we have gases on earth,  oxygen ect?  but if all the stars are burning balls of fire, don't they need fuel to Burn, remember the triangle at school,   "Fuel-oxygen-heat"   so if the stars have gases, would they give off a noise??  I don't know, maybe we should ask Dr. May.   oh!!! gonna have to stop thinking about this, my head's starting to ache, lol!!!

  Or we could just pretend like "Star Trek" when the Enterprise does a fly-by, lol!!!!

I think that is the best name they could come up with. Nobody would discuss a "BIG PFFF" or so... :)

Since what we call sound is actually our mind's recreation of the acoustic waves hiting our ears in a certain range of wavelenghts, you can make sound out of any type of waves - you only need to readjust the wavelengths and amplitudes to the sensible range. In this case, I bet the electromagnetic spectra of differents types of stars will be re-calibrated.
