For centuries, sound has been a valuable tool for both humans and animals, both as a carrier of information and a method of measurement. Bats use ultrasound to orient themselves in their environment, while dolphins use ultrasonic frequencies up to 120 kHz to locate schools of fish or objects underwater, and are even able to detect the heartbeat of other animals. One of the oldest techniques for measuring sound and recording its time is by counting the seconds between lightning and thunder to determine the distance to approaching thunder.
