Senior Audio Designer Matthew Florianz held a presentation giving an in-depth look into the making of the audio for Elite Dangerous with in-game examples. Pertaining the science approach with the way Frontier creates the universe, a question they often get is "why didn't you go for no sound in space? The game has sound." Jim Croft answered that question "In the vast and often empty blackness of space, audio fulfills the crucial role of communicating a compelling sense of speed, acceleration and mass to the player."[2]
