Prompt: Loud


"Whoah, don’t get so technical. Remebering that I’m a dumb journalist, please explain it again."

"Sorry, I’m just excited. This facility runs an accoustic telescope–"

"Accoustic? I thought sound couldn’t travel through space."

"Normally, no, but powerful enough events – supernovae, black hole collisions – can set up gravitational vibrations analogous to sound."

"I see. What did you, uh, ‘hear?’"

"Proof of the existence of extraterrestrial beings, with technology advanced beyond our imagination."

"What proof?"

"We don’t know how, but they made a black hole sing."

"Like, music?"


"Like the galaxy’s biggest hi-fi?"

"You could say that."

There’s my headline.
