Listen to sounds from our Solar System: you'll think you're in a Stanley Kubrick SciFi flick. This is truly an "other worldly" experience! Enjoy the show, and pass it on. Posted by Casey Kazan.
Song of the Sun
Cassini-Huygens passing through
NASA/ESA/ASI Cassini-Huygens spacecraft is hit by millions of dust particles as it goes through a gap in Saturn's icy rings.
Although the ring gaps appear empty, they are not. The spacecraft ploughed through these dust particles at a speed of about 70 000 kilometres per hour! These impacts, converted into audible sounds, resemble hail hitting a tin roof.
This video shows how the atmospheric circulation inside the Sun causes very low frequency 'sound' to be produced.
