Refinery29 This situation isn't hard for urban dwellers to imagine: You've put on the comfiest pair of pajamas and are just about to climb into bed with your favorite book, and that's when it happens: Some jerk honks loudly outside your window, or a group of rowdy neighbors goes nuts with complete disregard for other people's bedtime. No matter what the source is, noise pollution is never pleasant.

Get Soundproofing Curtains

Installing acoustical curtains on your windows is a cheap and convenient fix for the problem. These specialty curtains are lined with mass-loaded vinyl or MLV materials, making them much more noise absorbent than your run-of-the-mill variety. Plus, your whole room will instantly look fresher with a new set of window dressing. Eclipse makes an "absolute zero" blackout curtain that blocks 100% of light rays and significantly reduces noise levels.

Install Insulated Glass Units

These are double or triple pane windows separated with either an air or a gas insulator. While their intended purpose is to insulate the home and help you save up on energy bills, they also have the added bonus of reducing noise pollution. In fact, most homeowners report that 60-75% of exterior noise is muted when they installed IGUs in their home, according to by Liston. The result: an increasingly peaceful home environment.

Seal Your Windows With Caulk

Believe it or not, noise can seep through even the smallest of spaces. You should double check the framing of your windows to see if any cracks exist. "If there are any holes, you can either completely replace the previous caulking or fill them in," says Liston. "This will significantly reduce and prevent air from coming in or escaping."

Window Siding Makes A Difference

The materials around your windows plays big a factor in noise penetration. "Thick stone and brick will block more sound waves than vinyl or wood materials," says Liston. If you're living somewhere long term, it might be a good idea to think about replaces the window borders.

The World's Largest Radio Telescope Has a Massive Tourist Problem .
In September, China flicked the switch on the world’s largest radio telescope. The unusually large dish in an isolated area of Guizhou province needs radio silence to hone in on potential signs of alien life and distant pulsars, but researchers fear that a huge influx of tourists could be rendering the $180 million dish useless. Now, a choice between a booming local economy and the advancement of science looms on the horizon. According to the South China Morning Post (SCMP), government statistics released this month show that in the first half of 2017, nearly four million tourists visited “FAST” (Five-hundred-meter Aperture Spherical Telescope).
