Sonic Science

How do we hear sound? How does it reach our ears? Why do we have two ears? We don’t really ask questions about something that we take for granted, but that just makes it more fascinating when we answer them for you! Find out more about sound, how it travels, how we hear it and why in space, nobody can hear you scream!
