    The Stanford Experimental Physics Lab sonified data from the European Space Agency and NASA's Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO). This humming sound captures the Sun’s natural vibrations and provides scientists with a concrete representation of its dynamic movements.

  • Sounds of Saturn: Hear Radio Emissions of the Planet and Its Moon Enceladus

    New research from the up-close Grand Finale orbits of NASA’s Cassini mission shows a surprisingly powerful interaction of plasma waves moving from Saturn to its moon Enceladus. Researchers converted the recording of plasma waves into a “whooshing” audio file that we can hear -- in the same way a radio translates electromagnetic waves into music. Much like air or water, plasma (the fourth state of matter) generates waves to carry energy. The recording was captured by the Radio Plasma Wave Science (RPWS) instrument Sept. 2, 2017, two weeks before Cassini was deliberately plunged into the atmosphere of Saturn.

  • Sounds of a Launch

    A rocket launch is something you have to experience, according to NASA astronaut Kay Hire. A supply mission to the International Space Station is set to launch from NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia at 4:01 a.m. EST, Saturday, Nov. 17. Northrop Grumman's Antares rocket, carrying cargo in the company’s Cygnus spacecraft, will travel to the station with 7,400 pounds of crew supplies and hardware, including science and research in support of dozens of research investigations. Hire describes a previous launch of an Antares rocket in May from Wallops. Crowds gathered early in the morning on May 21 to witness the Antares take flight. Hire was among them. She said witnessing a launch in person is a special experience, one that can emotionally change you. “You actually feel this launch. Once you hear it, the sound waves actually kind of hit you,” Hire said. “It’s really such a great, visible manifestation, if you will, of all the efforts of this entire NASA team.” The Cygnus spacecraft carried 7,400 pounds of crew supplies and science experiments to the space station. Editor’s note: At the time of launch in May, Orbital ATK managed the cargo mission under NASA’s Commercial Resupply Services contract. On June 6, 2018, Orbital ATK was officially acquired by Northrop Grumman.

    These melodious tones are created at a special frequency in a plasma with a magnetic field. The frequency is set by the number of electrons in a given volume (the electron density) and the strength of the magnetic field. Hence, the frequency of these waves, called upper hybrid waves, can provide a very accurate measure of the density of the plasma; a fundamental property of the Jovian environment of interest to scientists. These emissions were acquired by Voyager 2 as it passed through the outer magnetosphere in 1979.

    Before settling into orbit around Saturn, Cassini faced a white-knuckle ride through the plane of the planet’s rings. When converted into an audio file, the interstellar cacophony is reminiscent of a hellstorm on Earth.

    Saturn is a source of intense radio emissions, which were monitored by our Cassini spacecraft. The radio waves are closely related to the auroras near the poles of the planet. These auroras are similar to Earth's northern and southern lights. This is an audio file of radio emissions from Saturn.
