The five senses in space: hearing

2013-05-06 - In space, no one can hear you scream, but inside the International Space Station it's a whole other story. CSA astronaut Chris Hadfield describes what he hears every day, and shares a few sweet strands of his own sounds as well. (Credits: Canadian Space Agency, NASA)


Chris Hadfield: Now, everybody knows in space that no one can hear you scream, 'cause sound can't travel through the vacuum of space. But inside the Space Station we constantly hear the hum and the war of the fans and the pumps, and the machinery. And the ongoing noise of the Space Station can really take its toll, which gives us all the more reason to make me play a little music, and cut in the monotony. So on that note, I'll see you out with a tune. Till next time.
