Apollo 10 Astronauts Heard Strange Music On the Far Side of the Moon

Recently recovered records indicate that the Apollo 10 astronauts heard strange music while completely cut off from radio contact with earth.

According to a new Science Channel documentary, astronauts on the Apollo 10 mission heard a very odd transmission that they described as "outer space-type music", while they traversed orbit on the far side of the moon. This is notable because during that time, the moon was blocking all possible transmissions from earth, so there is nothing of terrestrial origin that could explain the sounds. Transcripts of recordings from the mission indicate that they all heard the music, and discussed whether or not they should reveal the experience to their NASA counterparts back on Earth.

"It sounds like, you know, outer space-type music."

"You hear that? That whistling sound? Whooooooooo!"

"Well, that sure is weird music!"

"It's unbelievable! You know?"

"Shall we tell them about it?"

"I don't know. We ought to think about it."
