So what happens when we hear a voice or some other ominous sound? Do we pack up and say the hell with it? :)

Here’s another good one if you’ve ever wondered what a Space Shuttle Solid Rocket Booster sounds like on the ride up and back down:

There was nothing like multiple viewings of the original Star Wars from 1977 to inspire my young mind into thinking that I couldn't wait grow up and go explore space, just like in the movies.  And one viewing of Alien in 1979, to decide, "Fuck that!  I'm staying home!"

Great video!!!

"with sound mixed and enhanced by Skywalker Sound"

Though I wonder how much "enhancing" was done to the audio.

Yes, definitely a suspicious disclaimer!  My understanding is that this piece of footage was published as part of a Space Shuttle Tribute put together by NASA’s Glenn Research Center around 2010.  In addition to compiling a seamless track to match the various camera footage splices the “enhancements” mainly apply to the phase of powered flight which brought out a more listenable audio track compared to the raw audio which includes momentary drop-outs, screeching, and moments of extreme distortion.  The prelaunch and post-launch audio sounds hardly touched.  Most of NASA’s media files are publicly available for your listening pleasure though if you’d like to compare for yourself!

Blue Origin published camera and audio feed from a test flight a few years ago too.  There’s no doubt about it - rockets make some strange noises!

What about a fart in a space suit?

Interestingly enough it happens, and space suits can be prone to this since they operate at a pressure much lower than atmospheric to maintain flexibility.  John Young on Apollo 15 had quite the experience on the moon having to contend with that!  Most space suits have a neck dam that will minimize the passage of any foul-smelling gases, though that’s hardly the purpose of them. 

Flatulence in a space capsule is far more pressing given that you’re in close quarters with your crew mates combined with a lack of fresh air.  Luckily in space your sense of smell becomes significantly attenuated, however that still doesn’t do any favors for us that have to work in a spacecraft following return!
