NASA has released the sounds heard in May 1969 by the crew of Apollo 10 astronauts when they were orbiting the moon. The recordings of the strange echo were first revealed in 2008, four decades after happening. The story behind these bizarre whistling sound got public attention on Sunday night in a show on Discovery channel, as part of a series called “NASA’s Unexplained Files.” The copy of the conversation between the astronauts, Eugene Cernan and John Young is given below:

NASA’s technician said that these noises are considered to be originated from the interference caused by radios that were close to each other in the lunar module and the command module.
Michael Collins, pilot of Apollo 11 wrote in his book “Carrying the fire: An Astronaut’s Journeys”: 

“There is a strange voice in my headset, an eerie woo-woo sound.” "Had I not been warned about it, it would have scared the hell out of me," he continued. "Fortunately the radio technicians had a ready explanation for it: it was interference between the LM's and Command Module's VHF radios."   

Apollo 15’s astronaut, Al Worden said “It seems that if there was something recorded on there, then there was certainly something there.”

From where this bizarre sound originated, is still an unsolved mystery.
