The loudest sound in the universe

Post by 6.Jones »

The loudest sound in the universe comes from black hole mergers, according to Jim Fuller from Caltech. 520 decibels. There are other contenders, and of course a debate about what a sound is. A refreshing distraction from politics in the age of coronavirus.

Damn right. Atom bombs are in the hundreds of decibels near their source. That explosion might've been close to that.

Nah. The front door hinges are like the fireworks at the port in Beirut, just before the main bomb.

If you were God or a closer relative, we should unconsciously force you to die to prove it.
