Definition of galactic noise in English:

galactic noise


  • Unidentified radio-frequency radiation coming from beyond the solar system.

    ‘And the Voyager signals are directed towards Earth using microwave frequencies where galactic noise is relatively low, and antenna gain is high.’
    • ‘Fortunately, however, the man-made and galactic noise abate even more quickly.’
    • ‘So-called galactic noise is radio noise from outside the solar system.’
    • ‘If the continuous carrier is removed, (and the gain is increased) we will ultimately hear galactic noise.’
