The space race is over, folks. Ira wins a copy of The Space Tourist's Handbook: Where to Go, What to See, and How to Prepare for the Ride of Your Life for supplying the Generator with this nugget of amazement:

"A few years back, British scientists analyzed sound waves emanating from a black hole and discovered that it was effectively "singing" a B flat. This black hole put Barry White to shame, because the B flat was 57 octaves below Middle C."

Our amazing runners-up will also be entered into the Generator soon.

For all you readers who aren't Ira, you've still got a shot at a prize. Tomorrow, I'll be announcing a new prize and a new topic for this week's fact contest, so get your best trivia ready to go.
