    I'm sorry, I confused about what's
    been debunked here. Is it still
    true that in space noone can hear
    you quack?

    Me too. :smile:

    My question is; will that duck float?

    ---if it quacks like a duck, it's probably an echo!

    We need some conspiracy-theorists in here; this thing stinks of an international cover-up!

    Seriously though, what do they mean by,
    ?

    Did they actually record the duck in the reverb chamber, or just play the recording of the duck, thus proving that there speakers produce an echo in a reverb chamber?

    So you really think that they're ducking the issue?
