Sounds of space released by NASA

Sounds of space released by NASA

Just in time for Halloween, NASA's put together a compilation of elusive "sounds".

NASA mentioned on their website, "Soaring to the depths of our universe, gallant spacecraft roam the cosmos, snapping images of celestial wonders".

NASA revealed that the odd space sounds were captured as radiowaves, which have now been converted into sound waves of "howling planets" and whispering noises from distant stars.

The US space agency NASA has released a list of creepy space sounds. NASA spacecraft also recorded the popping and crackling of being "pelted by dust particles and small rocks" while flying by a comet, the reverberating tones of crossing Jupiter's bow shock, the static fog of the atmosphere of Saturn's moon Titan, and more.

Also included on the NASA soundtrack are sounds from Jupiter's largest moon, Ganymede.

NASA compares these electromagnetic waves to ocean surf-they create a "rhythmic cacophony" that has been recorded on several NASA missions.

When Juno entered Jupiter's orbit a year ago, the planet's magnetic field collided with the solar wind (charged particles released by the sun).

Meanwhile, Saturn, which according to Nasa is "a source of intense radio emissions" appeared to produce a spooky version of Star Trek-like sound effects.

Some of the sounds that NASA has to offer for this Halloween 2017 found, for example, the recording wave plasma detected by the probe, Van Allen, or even the "roar of Jupiter" that recorded the probe Juno. Saturn's radio waves, captured by Cassini are "closely related" to the auroras on the planet's poles.

The sounds are truly eerie: Jupiter's magnetosphere, the powerful magnetic field that extends millions of miles around the planet, sounds like a light saber from Star Wars, and distantly resembles the noise of frozen lakes here on Earth.

Sounds of a comet encounter are part of the compilation as well.
