The wonders of God never cease to amaze. Everything that was created seems to sing out and point back to their Creator.
In Luke 19, Jesus tells the Pharisees about His own disciples,
“…if they keep silent, the very stones will cry out!”
Even the stones and rocks know that they have a Creator. On one hand, we can see through what science has discovered that all things have a resonant frequency: everything vibrates. Planets, stars, comets, are all oscillating – suspended in space singing out about the One who made them.
Up until now, we’ve never been able to actually hear what these vibrations would sound like. Researchers from Birmingham University have made the first recordings of ‘resonant acoustic oscillations’ coming from inside a star in the ‘M4’ galaxy – a group of white dwarf stars that among the oldest known stars in the Milky Way. They are estimated to be at least 13 billion years old!
So what does a star sound like exactly?
A bit like synthesizer noises, no?
Professor Bill Chaplin from the University of Birmingham says,
“Just as archaeologists can reveal the past by excavating the earth, so we can use sound inside the stars to perform Galactic archaeology.”
The Bible tells us in Psalm 19 that:
“The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament showeth His handiwork.”
This star was singing since the moment it was created. It didn’t care if anyone ever heard it. It was only singing out and declaring the glory of its Creator. That’s a mystery we might never quite understand.
