mysterious "roar"
« on: January 09, 2009, 08:49:55 AM »
"LONG BEACH, Calif. -- Space is typically thought of as a very quiet place. But one team of astronomers has found a strange cosmic noise that booms six times louder than expected.

The roar is from the distant cosmos. Nobody knows what causes it.

Of course, sound waves can't travel in a vacuum (which is what most of space is), or at least they  can't very efficiently. But radio waves can."

Hmmm----

I wonder if this background noise might have something to do with dark energy or dark ,matter. This could be evidence or it could be a cosmic rock radio station.

Sorry, is there a link to a sound file so I can hear this roar?
Just because you've always done it that way doesn't mean it's not incredibly stupid.
Why is it so hard for believers to answer a direct question?
