We’re now hearing some of the sounds of the Apollo 10 mission for the first time.
The audio recordings are from the dark side of the moon, but they sound nothing like Pink Floyd.
Communications to Earth were cut off when the crew went around the moon.
But the recordings capture Thomas Stafford, John Young, and Eugene Cernan talking about hearing whizzing and whistling sounds that were unlike anything they had ever heard.

“You hear that? That whistling sound?” one of the men is heard asking.

“That music even sounds outerspacy doesn’t it?” he says.

“That sure is weird music,” another says.

The men talk about the noise for the next hour.

The tape was declassified in 2008.
It’s being revealed on the upcoming Science Channel series “NASA’s Unexplained Files.”

By the way, Pink Floyd’s album, “Dark Side of the Moon” came out four years later.
