Catch a falling star and put it in your pocket... and then listen to all the sounds it makes.

Because according to researchers at University of Birmingham, stars do make a sound. Scientists even managed to record it! The sounds are reminiscent of a cross between a computer overheating and an engine on a long car ride.

Using data for NASA's Kepler/K2 mission, the researchers studied resonant oscillation of stars using a technique called "asteroseismology."

In plain English, they study the movement of stars and make awesome new discoveries like this one.

The stars' oscillations make small changes in their brightness, which is caused by sound trapped inside the stars.

By measuring the sounds, scientists are able to determine the mass and age of each individual star.

The sounds could potentially help astronomers and physicists unlock the secrets to how galaxies form and evolve.

It's all just a matter of time before scientists can record the sounds inside your mind, too.
