There's A Mysterious Sound Coming From The Caribbean Sea That's So Loud It Can Be Heard From Space

In what sounds like a plot device from a science fiction movie involving sea monsters and aliens, a strange sound is coming out of the Caribbean Sea that's so loud it can be detected from space.

The University of Liverpool researchers who discovered the sound have dubbed it the Rossby whistle. The sound waves often vanish at the western end of the Caribbean basin and reappear on the eastern side, a phenomena known as the Rossby wormhole.
