A fairly recent innovation has allowed researchers at NASA to translate the interactions of charged electromagnetic particles, solar windows, ionospheres and planetary magnetospheres into electrical signals which can be transmitted back to the researchers in the form of radio waves.
NASA captures the incredible ‘voices’ of the planets
This fascinating new technology essentially allows the researchers back at NASA to listen to the ‘voice’ of the body under investigation. Currently, NASA’s Voyager, INJUN 1, ISEE 1 and HAWKEYE space probes are fitted with this technology, and the results certainly do not fail to impress.
NASA have released several sound recordings of the voices of planets and moons into the public domain. One of the first recordings to be released was the incredible voice of the smallest and most innermost of Uranus’s five spherical moons, Miranda. Listening closely to this amazing recording one can discern a thumping sound amid the rustling and whistling winds of the lunar surface which almost sounds like a heartbeat.
The larger and most complicated the celestial object, the louder and more complicated the sounds seem to be. This recording of the voice of the planet Neptune is a particularly chilling and eerie example of this.
The rings of Saturn are the most complex and unusual planetary ring structure that exists in this solar system. They are comprised of trillions of small particles of a diverse range of materials including water, ice, and rocky minerals. Given the sheer scale of Saturn’s rings, as well as the diversity of their composition, it is perhaps unsurprising that they have an incredibly distinctive voice. While the beautiful rings may seem tranquil, this recording demonstrates that they are singing with unbelievable activity.
