Rammstein concert “felt” even the earthquake sensor

The seismograph, which is located in the Hamburg research center DESY, recorded the Rammstein concert. This sensor was created to study elementary particle physics. It is interesting that he “saw” not a sound, but transverse vibrations of the soil.

DESY stands for Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron, a German electronic synchrotron. A scientific instrument was actually designed to withstand a variety of noises. Next to the center is the Volksparkstadion, where concerts are held.

On June 17, 2022, the official DESY account published an image of the seismometer readings serving the PETRA III X-ray source. An abnormally large and noisy peak was visible there. In time, it coincided with the Rammstein concert.

This seismograph captures transverse vibrations of the soil. Most likely, they were created by a crowd of people at a concert that jumped and danced. Explosions of pyrotechnics could also affect. Scientists, however, did not complain, but simply shared a curious fact.
