Have you thought about how the Sun sounds? Scientists studied 20 years of data to try to find out. They said the Sun sounds like a deep "heartbeat". The scientists looked at vibrations from the Sun. They will use these to understand more about what happens inside the Sun.

Researchers used data from space agencies to make a "song". A researcher said: "We don't have straightforward ways to look inside the Sun." He said the Sun's vibrations let us see inside the Sun. Waves move around inside the Sun. Our eyes could see this one day. A professor said the Sun was, "a pretty cool thing".
