Using data from their spacecraft, the NASA has compiled a collection of “sinister sounds“From the depths of the cosmos in time for Halloween.
As the space agency explains in a statement, the SoundCloud playlist Halloween It is full of new ‘moans’ and ‘whistles’ of our universe that would scare the most ghoulish creatures. “
Examples include tremors on mars: NASA’s Mars InSight lander has measured and recorded, for the first time in history, a probable “martemoto”. The lander’s Interior Structure Seismic Experiment (SEIS) instrument detected the weak seismic signal in 2019.
Sounds from the ancient universe: 13.8 billion years ago, when our universe was void of stars and planets, it was just a ball of hot plasma, a mix of electrons, protons, and light. Sound waves shook this childhood universe, triggered by minute or “quantum” fluctuations that occurred moments after the big bang who created the cosmos. The sounds of the early universe were captured by ESA’s Planck spacecraft.
In addition, ‘melodies’ from thecenter of our galaxy, the Milky Way. Telescopes give us the opportunity to see what the galactic center looks like in different types of light, and sonification is the process that translates data into sounds. Observations from NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory bring us sounds of the supermassive black hole of four million solar masses at the center of the galaxy.
Likewise, the compilation incorporates therotating auroras Jupiter: On its fourth close pass by Jupiter on February 2, 2017, NASA’s Juno spacecraft observed signals of plasma waves from Jupiter’s ionosphere. The Juno Waves instrument measured radio waves and plasma in Jupiter’s magnetosphere that can be heard.
