52 Hertz – The Sound of Solitude

27 June 2016

In the Internet I came across a report that there was this individual whale which calls at the highly singular frequency of 52-hertz, a frequency unused by any species of whale. The singularity of this sonic signature means that other whales cannot hear his call and so can neither understand it nor communicate with him or her. Although humans are able to hear it, they can´t understand it either.
