Turns Out Deep Space Makes The Creepiest Sound

0
0

In space, no one can hear you scream. But oh, you’ll be screaming, because it sounds like it’s populated by plasma demons.

Space: The Creepy Frontier

youtube.com

Thirty-five years after leaving Earth, NASA has determined that Voyager I left our solar system around Aug. 25, 2012, clocking a total travel distance of over 12 billion miles. Humans, by proxy, have officially begun interstellar travel — Starfleet here we come.

According to the American Geophysical Union, on Aug. 25, Voyager I broke through the heliosphere, a region of space that surrounds our solar system like a bubble of anomalous cosmic rays. Its instruments then became bombarded with galactic cosmic rays, or radiation coming from outside our solar system.

Then Voyager I's plasma wave instrument began to detect something new. Something alien (not invasion alien, just new-to-us alien). Between October 2012 and May 2013 it recorded two instances of interstellar plasma — which is a wicked cool name — vibrations. The sounds are frequencies within human hearing, so just consider this a preview of the things our great-grandchildren will hear on holiday to Alpha Centauri.

This artist's concept shows the general locations of NASA's two Voyager spacecrafts. Voyager 1 (top) has sailed beyond our solar bubble into interstellar space, the space between stars. Its environment still feels the solar influence. Voyager 2 (bottom) is still exploring the outer layer of the solar bubble.

The amount of ornate detail practically begs for these to become reality. Designer Nick Adelman challenged himself to encompass different cultures’ art in a fashion medium.

From Adelman's blog:

I designed these shoes with a unique goal in mind: to create a shoe as a summation of an entire culture's art. Each shoe possesses design qualities, color palettes, and designs only found in the respective culture. This project allowed me to investigate art historical cultures in a special way by challenging myself to translate an entire style (or series of styles) onto a single object.

The Little Known Story Of Captain Jack Sparrow's Origin

He didn’t just spring fully-formed onto the docks of Port Royale. The social circle of pirates is shockingly small.

Jack Sparrow was born in the middle of the Indian Ocean during a typhoon.

Jack Sparrow was born in the middle of the Indian Ocean during a typhoon.

The son of Captain Edward Teague and his unnamed pirate wife, Jack grew up in the life, bouncing between calling the infamous Shipwreck Cove home and being a cabin boy for his Pirate Lord (Lady?) Grandmother.

Walt Disney Pictures

In his teens, Sparrow captained his first ship, the Barnacle.

In his teens, Sparrow captained his first ship, the Barnacle.

Though barely a fishing fishing vessel, it was love at first sight. In the grand tradition of pirates, the Barnacle was commandeered from Tortuga by young Sparrow and his "friend" Arabella Smith. With a motley crew, including a young nobleman by the name of Fitzwilliam P. Dalton III on the run from an arranged marriage, they sailed the Caribbean for fortune and adventure.

Turned out Dalton was James Norrington's cousin.

Turned out Dalton was James Norrington's cousin.

During a sea battle between his father and young Jack Sparrow when Norrington was a child , James was knocked overboard. Saved by Captain Teague —because pirates have honor and who brings a kid to pirate fight — instead of gratitude James's father replies he'd rather his son have drowned then owe his life to a pirate. Suddenly Norrington's disdain towards Jack and willingness to shoot first makes way more sense.

In the end, rogue pirates destroyed the Barnacle.

You know that Code everyone goes on about? Rogue pirates had no code and were running roughshod over the seas, slaughtering whole crews and plundering without a care. In the end they were dealt with by the Brethren Court but not before irreversible damage had been done to the reputation of pirates as a whole.

Fishnets on a melee fighter? Come on, guys. A woman who prefers hand-to-hand combat over utilizing her superpower needs something more substantial. Unless, is that Kevlar fishnet? No? OK then, here are some pants.

Have you ever been in the upper atmosphere? Despite being closer to the sun, it's fucking cold and not a place to work on tanning your abs.

Huntress

Let's play a game. Imagine a superhero grows up in the mafia and vows revenge when, as a child, he watches his family slaughtered. This kid grows up to be a master assassin who is considered violent and unpredictable even by Batman. Imagine what you'd dress him like. Now apply that to the female form. Bet it looks more like the right image, doesn't it?

So much has been said about the impracticality of Power Girl's boob window that let's gloss over it and talk about things like not giving her a wedgie with some cute booty shorts. And while we're at it, NO CAPES. Unless it's part of the hero's fighting style — like Batman — it's just a liability.

9 Reasons Fans Of "Supernatural" Need To Read Kami Garcia's "Unbreakable"

Everything you love about the television show, now with 100% more competent female characters. The first book in The Legion series hits all the right paranormal notes.

First off, it has two fine as hell demon-hunting brothers.

First off, it has two fine as hell demon-hunting brothers.

Jared and Lukas Lockhart — here represented by stand-ins Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles — are twin teens on a mission to kill a demon for family reasons. Part of an ancient order called the Legion, they kick paranormal ass, take names, and don't get along due to conflicting personalities even though they love each other. If this sounds familiar just roll with it because there's a 97% chance Lockhart boys are at least tangentially related to the Winchester clan.

But hold on because the main character is a girl, Kennedy Waters.

But hold on because the main character is a girl, Kennedy Waters.

If you love Supernatural but feel your eyes are about to roll out of your head due to the disposable nature of their female characters, worry not. Kennedy might dip a toe into Mary Sue territory with the love triangle but she's a girl with agency, personality, and a bone to pick with the creatures of the night. Even if she isn't queen of the badasses. That title goes to Alara, the fourth Legion member and voodoo priestess extraordinaire.

Kennedy is special. Unless she's not. Okay she is but is it the right kind of special?

Kennedy is special. Unless she's not. Okay she is but is it the right kind of special?

The five members of the Legion are passed down through family and each comes with a special power and with that power, of course, great responsibility. Each kid is born with an ability — in Kennedy's case a photographic memory — but until the mark appears on their wrist, the child is not chosen. So, similar to Sam Winchesters's story arc, the theme of is she the chosen one or not is a huge plot thread.
