in reply to What would be the most significant thing to happen if a rope (or wire) tied the Earth and the Moon together?

The rope would get up and down in pitch in the cosmic wind - depending on length and tension - as the moon travels from perihelion to aphelion and back.

(update: to make that audible, the sound must be transposed by many octaves higher - unless a spaceship of significant mass silences the chord at an overtone node.)

perl -le'print map{pack c,($-++?1:13)+ord}split//,ESEL'
