    Scientists have used photos made by the Hubble Space Telescope and Wide Field Camera 3 to create a melody of the Universe. According to the researchers, each star and galaxy was given its own sound based on its type.

    "Objects near the bottom of the image produce lower notes, while those near the top produce higher ones. Most of the visible specks are galaxies housing countless stars. A few individual stars shine brightly in the foreground. Stars and compact galaxies create short, clear tones, while sprawling spiral galaxies emit longer notes that change pitch", NASA explained.
