These Laugh at Eleven

A sound system at the European Space Agency's testing facility in Noordwijk, The Netherlands, may be the loudest sound system on Earth. ESA folks claim that if it was fired on maximum output, it could kill a person exposed to it directly. It's not used for that, though -- it's used to test how well delicate satellite construction stands up to the powerful sound waves generated by rocket motors at liftoff.

But I bet "Won't Get Fooled Again" would sound great on it...
