NASA releases spooky “sounds” of “howling” space

NASA Space

Howling planets, whistling plasma waves, and pelting space rocks: the sounds of space are spooky - and NASA compiled a list of them to make your Halloween party a little bit more nerdy.

NASA said that the data used to create the playlist was collected by instruments on spacecraft that capture radio emissions, which scientists converted into sound waves.

NASA revealed that the unusual space sounds were captured as radiowaves, which have now been converted into sound waves of "howling planets" and whispering noises from distant stars.

The space agency has released a playlist on SoundCloud, featuring noises captured by spacecrafts from the "depths of our universe". Halloween or Hallowe'en, also known as Allhalloween, All Hallows' Eve, or All Saints' Eve, is a celebration observed in a number of countries on 31st October, the eve of the Western Christian feast of All Hallows' Day.

In classic NASA fashion, the playlist also includes an explanation of what listeners are actually hearing in the sound clips.




Now it should be pointed out that these are not the sounds directly recorded from space.

Juno Captures the "Roar" of Jupiter: Juno is now orbiting Jupiter. On June 27, 1996, the Galileo spacecraft made the first flyby of Jupiter's largest moon, Ganymede, and this audio track represents data from Galileo's Plasma Wave Experiment instrument.

Other sounds are coming from Saturn, including the radio emissions related to the auroras over the poles of the planet, or even the passage of a comet.

The eerie sound is similar to the emissions recorded on Earth during the aurora borealis in the northern hemisphere.

In 2011, NASA's Stardust spacecraft flew by the Tempel 1 comet.
