Question 1469

Is there sound in space? If so, what is the speed of sound there? — MH
No, there is no sound in space. That's because sound has to travel as a vibration in some material such as air or water or even stone. Since space is essentially empty, it cannot carry sound, at least not the sorts of sound that we are used to.
