NASA releases spooky “sounds” of “howling” space

Some spacecraft have instruments capable of capturing radio emissions, is that I'm saying.

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 "Spooky Space Sounds" compilation, which is available on SoundCloud, features 22 eerie audio clips of spacecraft like the Juno Jupiter probe, Cassini Saturn mission and Voyager robot making their way through the cosmos. 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 order to translate the radio signals captured at Ganymede, scientists used an approach called data sonification.

Therefore, NASA scientists chose to gather them all in a special Halloween compilation just in time for the spooky holiday.

Juno Captures the "Roar" of Jupiter: Juno is now orbiting Jupiter. These emissions are closely related to the auroras near the poles of the planet, according to the statement. Saturn's radio emissions have also been made part of the compilation.

The auroras seen at Saturn are similar to Earth's northern and southern lights and occur when solar wind material interacts with the planet's atmosphere and magnetic field.

Another sound resembling "roaring ocean surf" - the Plasma waves, was recorded with the EMFISIS instrument aboard NASA's Van Allen Probes. The resulting whooshing and whistling sounds turned into a deep boom as Juno moved further inside the planet.

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

Another recording - Sounds of a Comet Encounter - features sounds of rocks and dust particles colliding with the Stardust Aircraft, as comet Tempel 1 flies by on February 14, 2011.
