Back in June, we talked about an incident in 2016 when
U.S. diplomats in Cuba claimed to have been attacked with some sort of sonic weapon. However, after analyzing the audio recording of the attack, scientists now suggest that the sound was not an unnatural one, but rather a very natural sound: the echoing call of the
Anurogryllus celerinictus cricket.
