Author’s Note: Is there actually no sound in space? I did some brief research and, from what I found, yes, space is a vacuum and completely silent. Because there’s no air in empty space, there’s no sound, according to Ask an Astronomer. And what we know as “sound” is actually vibrations in the air. So, yeah, I can image the silence in space to be so quiet as to be almost deafening, if that makes sense. Plus, I think it’s super-cold. So space is terrifyingly quiet and cold, which is why there’s probably a whole genre of science-fiction horror and cosmic horror in movies and books! Space is freakin’ scary!
