What...IS...'Music' in the universe?
By the time we played any type of music back 'when', and sent it out (radio waves) amongst the universe...it would have reached the nearest solar system by now - radio waves from the 1920's and 1930's?

This next song is probably not heard amongst the nearest solar system by now.

Or is it?

What would other brethren in our celestial neighbourhood think of us when they here this?

The very first radio waves heard by another civilization other than us would most probably hear 'hitler' and the first olympic games.

I can just imagine what the rest of the universe thinks of what 'we think' is music by now.

Re: What...IS...'Music' in the universe?
The very first radio signals were sent out in 1886, over 124 years ago. In about 12 years, there were occasional broadcasts. By 1920, there was at least one radio station with over 1000 watts of broadcast power.

So the signals have traveled about 124 light-years. But they would be too weak to detect, because of the background static.


=== 50 years? That was 1961, there were many many radio and TV stations by then.

Marconi transmitted the first radio waves that contained information in about the year 1895. Those radio waves today would have traveled 111 light years, since radio wave travel at the speed of light. They were not very strong and they may not be distinguisable from the background radiation but they are out there traveling outward from the point in space where they originated.

Now you might as ask how far is 111 light years. On an astronomical scale, not very far. The Milky Way galaxy is about 80,000 to 100,000 light years in diameter. So our first radio waves have traveled only 0.0014 % of the distance from one end of the galaxy to the other. The Sun is about 26,000 light years from the center of the galaxy so the first radio waves have traveled only 0.0043% of the way to the center.

The nearest star to the sun is 4.4 light years away. The 50 closest stars are within 15 light years. The 100 nearest are within 30 light years. So it is likely that the first radio waves have reached about 400 to 500 stars in the galaxy by now. Let's put that into some perspective. The galaxy is estimated to contain 200 to 400 billion stars.

The next nearest large galaxy is Andromeda galaxy. It is 2.5 million light years away. It is quite probable that by the time the first human radio waves reach Andromeda, humans may no longer inhabit the universe.

Each planet has its own sound or song all different, even the Sun has his song.
