  • Infrasound and ultrasound recording is needed for scientific investigation

    Richard Stone reported mystery symptoms of US diplomats in Havana, Cuba and in Guangzhou, China respectively (1). Richard Stone should include recorded frequencies information of the incident. If the recorded frequency range using normal microphone is from 20Hz to 20 kHz, Infrasound and ultrasound information cannot be investigated. Instead of author's hypothesis, scientific evidences should be disclosed. Although the story by Richard Stone is interesting, the report is lacking in scientific evidences and logical hypothesis.
