[Science] How does space sound?


Space is not silent, it really sounds!. This is a fascinating recording of Jupiter sounds (electromagnetic "voices") by NASA's Voyager 1. The complex interactions of charged electromagnetic particles from the solar wind , planetary magnetosphere etc. create vibration. It sounds very interesting, even spooky.
  • And check this link too where you can listen to sounds from different planets and satellites after the introduction.

*magnetosphere: magnetosfera. Región alrededor de un planeta en la que el campo magnético de éste desvía la mayor parte del viento solar formando un escudo protector contra las partículas cargadas de alta energía procedentes del Sol.
*spooky: fantasmal, escalofriante.
