    Thanks H,

    The music? Only in our minds; I like it. It moves me. I think of it as the Music of the Spheres: With no air in space, we accept that there is no sound, but cosmic explosions or other events create pressure or compression waves which radiate through space "like" sound waves through our atmosphere. We just don’t have the physical equipment to hear those waves but they still exist.

    Many of the “images” we accept as visual representations of real objects or combinations of objects interacting in the medium of space are impossible to see with the naked eye. Instead they are visualized through combinations of different "visual" systems giving us “eyes” where none can actually exist; the "Hot Jupiter" in the attachment below is one; spectrographic images or false color images are examples of another way of seeing things our eyes can’t see in ordinary light. Why not the same for the ears?
