The fastest possible speed of sound has been recorded for the first time which is about 36 km per second.

The result is around twice as fast as the speed of sound in diamond, the hardest known material in the world, said the researchers from Queen Mary University of London, the University of Cambridge and the Institute for High Pressure Physics in Troitsk, Moscow.

Sound waves can travel through different mediums, such as air or water, and move at different speeds depending on what they’re travelling through.
