Approximately 2 months before the historic Moon landing by Apollo 11 and it’s crew, astronauts from the Apollo 10 mission recall the strange incident of hearing a ‘strange space music’ from the far side of the Moon. They were so surprised by the sound that at the time, they questioned whether to report it to NASA at all.
The astronauts described the music as ‘strange, otherworldly music coming through the Apollo module’s radio’, with the sounds reported to have been picked up by the craft as it orbited the dark side of the Moon, where all audio and visual contact with Earth is lost for up to an hour.
“It sounds like, you know, outer space-type music,” one of the astronauts had said. “You hear that ? That whistling sound ? Whooooooooo ! Well, that sure is weird music !”
“The Apollo 10 crew was very used to the kind of noise that they should be hearing,” said astronaut Al Worden who had himself flown to the moon as part of the Apollo 15 mission in 1971.
“Logic tells me that if there was something recorded on there, then there was something there.”
“If you’re behind the moon and hear some weird noise on your radio, and you know you’re blocked from the Earth, then what could you possibly think ?”
The strange case has remained hidden away in NASA’s archives until recently, and is featured recently on the show ‘NASA’s Unexplained Files’.
