Sonification of Hubble Ultra Deep Field (2014)

This sonification of the Hubble Ultra Deep Field (2014) image plays a note for each galaxy when it emitted the light captured in this image. The farther away the galaxy is, the longer its light has traveled before reaching the Hubble Space Telescope.

In just under a minute, we can hear back nearly 13 billion years to the farthest galaxies in that photo. The light we receive from those galaxies was emitted when the universe was only a few hundred million years old.
