If this sound coming from space really is alien music, we're sitting on news that could change science as we know it. If it's coming from something else, we may still have a scientific revolution in the making.

We've provided you with tools to investigate the situation. You can use the radio, optical, and X-ray telescopes to analyze the Mystery Sound, and compare it to astronomical objects observed in the same way. How are they similar, how do they differ? Make sure you use the online astronomical encyclopedia database to get fully briefed on the background science. We managed to get some scientists to help us as well by video. You'll find their testimony very helpful.

You should have enough data to solve this mystery. If you can do it, there may even be a promotion in this for you.

Good luck, and good space sleuthing!
