i wouldnt piss in the wind.... . Tlab wind ' 1 so faast it . T. I thought the sound barrier existed because of the wind itself. The sound barrier is the point at which the object in question travels faster than the speed at  neptune

I thought the sound barrier existed because of the wind itself. The sound barrier is the point at which the object in question travels faster than the speed at which the sound can travel through said medium. But if all of the winds on Neptune are traveling at those speeds, then wouldn't the sound that they make thereby be traveling within them? So they wouldn't be breaking any barrier, because they are traveling within their barrier?

Someone correct me. This is just me ruminating

I think what it's trying to say is that if something travelling that fast back here on Earth would break the barrier. I don't know much about it anyway, but, I try.

I think you're correct. What it means in the content is that the wind speeds on Neptune are greater than the speed at which sound travels through air on Earth.

I like this guy. A thoughtful question, the answer to which is beyond my grasp.
A good question, it is. The answer, though? I have... no... idea!

Could somebody please science and explain what that would sound/look like? I know what breaking the sound barrier is, I just can't comprehend that...

i agree,
just imagining the wind breaking the sound barrier everywhere would be crazy.

Although, don't planes fly silent after breaking the sound barrier because they're flying faster than sound? Or am I dumb?

you're not dumb its kind of like that to be fair, if for example a jet flies past you and its going faster than the speed of sound it passes silently then you hear a big crash as the sound follows behind it hope that helps!

Well if we assume that's true, then the wind would be totally silent, but horrible fast. And maybe there would be sonic booms when it reaches that point...

can you imagine sitting somewhere, you hear a loud boom in the distance and then
you just get smashed to bits by the air moving silently at supersonic speeds?
scary as ****.

Indeed. We'd have to live underground or something. Or just run into out space-houses as soon as he heard on the news that there would be death-wind today.

you would just hear a really loud wind sound similar to large gust from hurricanes but in this case it would be much faster and louder as for what it would look like it depends on what the atmosphere is made up of since it's blue I think it's methane(could be wrong) if it is methane it would give the wind a slight distortion effect similar to looking through water

Didn't I read it rains diamonds on neptune? Does that mean it is entirely possible that during a storm there are diamonds flying through the air breaking the sound barrier? And I thought Venus was scary hot damn.
