While I think some relaxing chai may be in order for you, I do in
essence agree with your general evaluation. What you're hearing isn't
sound produced by some fantastical space body. It is some radiation
that has been modified in very drastic ways (relatively speaking) in
order to make a "something" audible. Scientists routinely put out
such nonsense: "Here is what DNA sounds like! Amazing!" No no no...
please stop...
