NASA's eerie space sounds should be the playlist for your Halloween party


Talking about their latest playlist, NASA said: "Soaring to the depths of our universe, gallant spacecraft roam from cosmos, snapping images of celestial wonders".

The track on the playlist also captures the eeriest sound from Jupiter's largest moon, Ganymede, through spacecraft Galileo's Plasma Wave Experiment instrument. "When scientists convert these to sound waves, the results are eerie to hear". The spacecraft has crossed the boundary of Jupiter's vast magnetic field, recording the encounter with the bow shock over the course of about two hours on June 24, 2016. That may very well be the case, but that doesn't mean space isn't filled with an abundance of odd sounds in the form of radio bursts, electromagnetic pulses, solar wind, charged particle bursts, and other celestial emissions.

The independent agency said it created the playlist to make listeners' "skin crawl" to keep with the spirit of Halloween.

Whistler waves which travel inside the plasmasphere (a thin layer of cold, dense plasma that surrounds Earth) produce a so-called "plasmaspheric hiss" which sounds a lot like radio station static.

Although space lacks a proper medium that would allow sound waves to travel, meaning nobody can actually hear your screams, it is, however, neither "empty" or "silent". Saturn's radio emissions have also been made part of the compilation.

Some of the featured sounds include futuristic blips taken from Saturn's poles and the chorus of metallic chirps of plasma waves rolling through the vacuum of space near Earth. In fact, the sounds were produced as Stardust, a NASA spacecraft, was hit by multiple particles of dust as the comet passed by it.
