Yes, I know, there’s no such thing as ‘sound’ in space but come on you’d be screaming to if you were getting eaten by a black hole and you wouldn’t care if anyone heard you or not.

My wife and I disagree on the whole man in space thing. She is a firm believer that man has no business going to places like the moon and other planets as long as our world is the way it is. I on the other hand firmly believe that mankind is doomed to extinction if we don’t get off of this planet and better sooner than later.
