Space is the name we give to everywhere outside the earth and its atmosphere. It includes the rest of the solar system, other galaxies and the enormous areas of nothing that are in-between! Space is a vacuum – there is no gas. Because there are no gases to vibrate, sound cannot travel across space. Most of space has not been explored by humans and there are still lots of things we don’t know about it. There are lots of stories, songs and music about space, that try to imagine what it might be like!
What sounds might you hear if you were on another planet?
Can you imagine what no sound at all would sound like?
