Sounds of Space
We can hear the
sounds OF space by using scientific instruments on spacecraft
as our 'ears.' Scientific instruments detect and record
radio waves, then transmit the recorded information to Earth.
Once the transmitted information has been received at Earth,
the data are processed for use in scientific studies. This
processing also allows data to be converted or translated into sounds.
Descriptions of several types of sounds.
The following links contain sample sounds produced by processing
data received from spacecraft
