What Do Gravitational Waves Sound Like?

Just last week, scientists finally confirmed that gravitational waves exist. Now, researchers from the LIGO (Laser Interferomater Gravitational Wave Observatory) unveil a video that captures the sound that ripples in the fabric of space-time make. Hearing these gravitational waves means you can essentially hear the universe. So what does our universe sound like? Play the video and listen to it yourself.
