SATURDAY DIGEST: World's greatest unsolved mysteries (Day9)

Tao town in New Mexico
The Tao Hum
Even though science, technology, and research have come a very long way but there are many unsolved mysteries till date, So today i bring you another of the world's greatest unsolved mysteries 'Tao Hum.' In the small town of Taos, New Mexico, There is a certain buzz often heard on the horizon that can be compared to the sound of a distant diesel engine. Although the sound can be heard by the naked ear, various sound detection devices are not able to pick up the hum.
This is known as the Taos Hum and up to this day, no one still knows how this sound is being created.
Data from a Taos Hum study suggests that around two percent of the population could detect the Taos Hum. For those who can hear the Hum it can be a very disturbing phenomenon. Among those who cannot hear the hum and some specialists, there has been skepticism about whether it exists; it is distinct from, and should not be confused with, the term sometimes used to describe the well-attested phenomenon of microseisms.

The essential element that defines the Hum is what is perceived as a persistent low-frequency sound, often described as being comparable to that of a distant diesel engine idling, or to some similar low-pitched sound for which obvious sources (e.g., household appliances, traffic noise, etc.) have been ruled out. There are a number of audio reproductions of the Hum available on the web, as well as at least one purported recording.
