No sound in space

I have read this text and summarised it.

If you were in space and a spaceship blows up, you would not be able to hear a thing. This is because sound waves are energy that is created by vibrations. If you stretch a rubber band tightly with two fingers and pluck it with the other hand. It would vibrate and create sounds. Sound can be heard anywhere except space. Space is a vacuum and there is no matter in vacuums so there is nothing in space to vibrate. That is why to hear a loud noise in space is impossible.
