  • NASA releases spooky “sounds” of “howling” space

"In regions laced with magnetic fields, such as the space environment surrounding our planets, particles are continually tossed to and from by the motion of various electromagnetic waves known as plasma waves", NASA said, earlier this year. There are a total of 22 recordings in the playlist titled "Spooky Sounds from Across the Solar System".

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. It has shared a SoundCloud playlist of creepy space sounds which include roughly 20 tracks. Juno's Waves instrument recorded the encounter with the bow shock over the course of about two hours on June 24, 2016. Plasma Waves: Plasma waves, like the roaring ocean surf, create a rhythmic cacophony that - with the EMFISIS instrument aboard NASA's Van Allen Probes - we can hear across space.

"Saturn's Radio Emissions" were recorded with the Cassini spacecraft, which recently plunged into the planet's atmosphere, bringing its long mission to an end. These auroras are similar to Earth's northern and southern lights. The soundtracks come from celestial bodies including Jupiter and Saturn, as well as many different types of stars. This approach is called "data sonification".

The Cox Plate win gave Winx her 15th Group 1 win, equaling the famous sprinter Black Caviar on Australia's all-time list. She's an unbelievable athlete and that helps her to recover well", he said. "He's given us all a heart attack.

Instead this is data collected by instruments capable of receiving radio waves that NASA's scientists have then examined, and converted into audio files. The sounds range from a highpitched chorus of plasma waves, to trance-like radar echoes from the surface of Titan, and some haunting whispers from Jupiter's largest moon Ganymede.

Be sure to have this playlist handy when trick-or-treaters pay you a visit this Halloween.
