Space Has Never Sounded Scarier Than On NASA's Halloween Playlist

31 October 2017

Some of NASA's spacecrafts are capable of capturing radio emissions and scientists convert these to sound waves - the results sometimes being spooky sounds of the cosmos.

The US space agency has put together a SoundCloud playlist of eerie sounds from space and it's sure to send shivers up your spine. That may very well be the case, but that doesn't mean space isn't filled with an abundance of unusual sounds in the form of radio bursts, electromagnetic pulses, solar wind, charged particle bursts and other celestial emissions.

Iran asks United Nations nuclear chief to confirm it still follows deal
So far the agency has released eight reports each time confirming Iran's adherence to the global nuclear pact. In exchange, the USA and other countries agreed to curb economic sanctions against Iran.

The audio files were taken from planets, a comet and plasma waves.

NASA's Juno probe zips around Jupiter every few weeks at speeds of up to 130,000 miles per hour, plowing through all kinds of invisible fields in the process. The soundtracks come from celestial bodies including Jupiter and Saturn, as well as many different types of stars. The waves are electric and magnetic fields moving through the ions and electrons that compose the plasma.

Barack Obama called for jury duty in IL and plans to serve
Evans said officials will take safety precautions and make any special arrangements needed for Obama's appearance. The gig also offers pay that's far below what Obama is used to: Cook County jurors earn less than $20 per day .

Whatever the case, turning the data into audio makes it sound like screams trying to break through from an ethereal plane.

Pakistan missions in UAE observe Kashmir black day
Kashmiri Hurriyet leaders held a demonstration outside the Indian High Commission in Islamabad to mark the Black Day, today. Barjees Tahir said that India should come forward for dialogue with Pakistan for peaceful solution of Kashmir.

"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 whistling emission is the sound of lightning moving away from the planet and into the magnetized plasma above. However, the noises were actually a spacecraft being struck by dust particles and rocks from the comet Tempel 1 back in 2011.
