What does the Sun like? Perhaps you have never about what kinds of sounds the Sun makes, but scientists have out. Researchers from the European Space Agency, NASA and the Solar and Heliospheric Agency 20 years of data to to the Sun. They say the Sun a low, deep "heartbeat" sound. The scientists used a solar observatory to vibrations from the Sun. They translated these vibrations into different sounds. These can the scientists what is happening inside the Sun. They can now more about solar flares, chemical reactions and other phenomena that inside the Sun and on its surface.

The scientists how they created the Sun's sound. Researchers from the Stanford Experimental Physics Lab data from the space agencies into a "song". Dr Alex Young said: "We don't straightforward ways to look inside the Sun. We don't have a microscope to inside the Sun, so using a star or the Sun's vibrations allows us to inside of it." Dr Young : "Waves are travelling and around inside the Sun, and if your eyes sensitive enough, they could actually see this." He added: "We are finally to understand the layers of the Sun and the complexity. That simple sound is us a probe inside a star. I think that's a pretty cool thing."
