Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Sound waves require a medium to travel through as vibrations. Space has no such medium. I think. You should try posting this over in the Physics group  they'll probably be able to give you a much better answer :P

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5sound travels due to longitudinal vbiration of the particles present in the medium of propagation. But there is no particles to vibrate in the space.. therefore sound cannot propagate in space!!!
