Ever wonder how the International Space Station alarms sound? This warning alert is sounded whenever an anomaly is detected that is not life-threatening but does require immediate action.

These require an immediate response because an important component of the Space Station has a problem. These are also marked in red and the alarm is designed to attract attention. Based on the error code that is displayed, the astronauts and control centres can quickly reach for the appropriate procedure to follow as a first response to warnings.

This sound was sent to us by the Columbus Control Centre near, München, Germany, the operations centre for ESA astronauts and the Columbus laboratory, part of the orbiting weightless research centre.
