Sound anomaly in US city defies laws of physics


All about U.S

The “Center of the Universe”, located in the city of Tulsa, in the United States, is a place that does not attract much attention from tourists. There you can see a small concrete circle in the middle of a larger circle made of bricks. But it is there that a mysterious and little-known acoustic phenomenon occurs.

Center of the Universe

The site itself is only around 76 centimeters, with the widest circle measuring around 2.5 meters in diameter.

If you stand in the middle of the main circle and make noise, the sound will echo back much louder than it was emitted. Additionally, your voice will sound extremely distorted when heard from outside the circle.

The effect is believed to be caused by sound reflecting off a circular wall. Still, although many people have studied the cause of the strange anomaly, there is no clear explanation for the phenomenon. The information is from IFLScience.

Other sound anomalies

There are other acoustic anomalies similar to the “Center of the Universe” around the world, including the Lake George Mystery Spot, which is also created by a small round stone structure.

The dome of St Paul’s Cathedral in London is also known as a whispering gallery, where its silent tones on one side are emitted through the huge dome to people who can hear it clearly on the other side thanks to the reverberation of sound waves. .

Similar structures that create the same effect can be found in many ancient and modern buildings, from the Mayan city of Chichen Itza to Grand Central Station in New York.
