Scientists have recorded this eerie 'music' from 13-billion-year-old stars

Unlike light, sound can't travel through the vacuum of space, but researchers can get at certain types of audio through a technique known as asteroseismology: simply put, it measures the oscillations of distant stars, which appear to us as very small changes in brightness. These oscillations can then be converted into sound.
