SEATTLE - Did you ever wonder what the Big Bang sounded like? Physics Professor John Cramer at the University of Washington has spent a chunk of his career trying to recreate what the ecoustic experience was like back billions of years ago when the universe was formed.
Cramer has just released his most precise aural recreation to date of this mega, er, event. Listen below, it might surprise you, especially if you thought it would actually sound like a BANG -- or like one of these:

They say no one can hear you scream in space because there is no air to vibrate, but Professor Cramer explained to QMI Agency that the Big Bang is the exception to this -- the medium that pervaded the universe in the first 100,000 years or so was far more dense than the atmosphere of the Earth.
Press play to hear what Cramer believes the Big Bang probably sounded like.
