Simulating stars’ sounds to reveal their secrets

“A cello sounds like a cello because of its size and shape,” said astronomer Jacqueline Goldstein. “The vibrations of stars also depend on their size and structure.”

I wonder if there are stars out there that actually do sound like the cello or saxophone or any and all of the other musical instruments. Maybe one way to look at this universe is as an infinite orchestra of stars. I wonder what the full orchestra sounds like vibrating all together from the outside.

Little wonder we are driven to make music. It's literally what we are made of.

"We are stardust, we are golden
We are billion year old carbon"

I'm off to join in on the cacophony for a little while.

    Re: Simulating stars’ sounds to reveal their secrets

    I am listening to a mockingbird outside my office that has taken claim to a Fur tree and the top roof spike of the Penn Station next door. He is a Batchelor, so he sings endlessly day and night, looking for what all of us are. He repeats sounds he has herd in his brief life.  A Robin, A Crow, a starling, or a car alarm.

    My point is the music is everywhere and still from within all of us. that is nature.

    So is the music. All from a higher source. Play on.

      Sounds like your office window is a microcosm of our universe.
