Halloween Special: NASA's Spooky Sounds Playlist

Article Written By: Kyle Tam


 To celebrate a spooky Halloween, NASA has released a playlist of eerie space sounds picked up by various satellites travelling across the solar system.
 The playlist includes sounds from several missions including NASA's Juno spacecraft to Jupiter and the Cassini spacecraft to Saturn. Although there is no atmosphere or other medium to carry sounds waves in the vaccuum of space, some of the spacecraft were outfitted with instruments that were capable of capturing radio emissions from bodies in the solar system. These emissions were then transmitted back to earth and converted into sound waves.
