Star Wars Blaster Lakes

Yes, they can make this sound!

"Pew! Pew! Pew!" You may have made this sound at home with wrapping paper tubes, NERF guns or even at the store... Okay, maybe I'm revealing too much. But if you love Star Wars, you know how much fun it is to imitate those blasters. (Don't even get me started on lightsabers.)

Did you know that a frozen lake can make the sounds of a blaster if the conditions are right? Check out this video of frozen lake, iceberg and other ice structure sounds. Known as "acoustic dispersion," it's a combination of vibrations that spread out through the ice, creating really cool noises. 

Have you ever heard this noise in ice? What about other fun noises? Share your experiences in the chat.
