Sound is a physical wave, which means it requires a physical medium to travel through such as air or water. Hence there is NO sound in space (and all of those movies where you hear spaceships zooming past are scientifically wrong.)

Light is different as it is an electromagnetic wave which CAN travel through empty space (which is good for us because otherwise we would have no sunlight).
