That strange rock in the sky

It looks closer than it actually is, yet it is so very far away from us, spinning on its axis moving around the earth in its elliptical orbit.  The magnificent sun lights it up.  But it has no atmosphere. No wind, no weather, no plants, but for the permanent vandalism of asteroids and comets, impact without sound marks its 4.5 billion or so years of history.

The molecules and atoms are vast distances apart, there is no vibration. Space Odyssey 2001 captures that silence so well. The breath is prominent, one of the key sounds that amplifies the silence.

Will we ever know true silence like on the moon?

As long as we are the the witness we cannot escape our own ambient sound.
