The Most Mysterious and Scary Sounds Ever Recorded in Area

published on July 2, 2020

if you believe what you see in science

fiction films then you probably believe

that in space you can easily hear for

example the sound of some kind of

explosion though for now I suggest

forgetting the fantasies of script

writers and directors and turning to

scientific facts because these are much

more fascinating than any fabrication

space has always amused people from the

very moment our ancestors gazed at the

sky and realized it looked like

something magical

they began wondering what was happening

up there above it all people suddenly

had questions and answer them they had

to come up with myths fairytales about

gods and heroes that in general could

explain anything over time myths faded

into the background and people began

building theories about the structure of

the cosmos

today we know space isn't some kind of

solid dome we know its temperature and

various properties and we even

understand what would happen if we tried

touching it with our bare hands but what

about sound

first of all let's define some terms and

concepts sound is the propagation of

elastic waves of mechanical vibrations

in a solid liquid or gaseous medium

these waves like any others have

amplitude and frequency however space is

neither solid nor liquid nor gaseous

there aren't enough molecules in airless

space to vibrate and create an audible

sound there are so few particles there

that even the loudest sounds like

explosions of entire planets die out

almost instantly does that mean that

silence reigns in space well yes and

soundwaves in a vacuum don't really

propagate however there are

electromagnetic waves that freely move

through space in any direction so to

hear other planets and stars you'd only

need to catch the radiation of the

object you're interested in and as it

were converted into sound through a

speaker or headphones and it's easier

than it seems at first glance for the

first time ever the sounds of space were

recorded as a part of the Voyager

program it was these spacecraft that

finally allowed humanity not only to see

the cosmos but also to hear it today

nASA has many cosmic sounds at its

disposal some sound just weird while the

others are really creepy

I suggest plugging in your headphones


these sounds of lightning on Jupiter

were recorded by Voyager 1 or rather it

recorded electromagnetic waves after

which they were transformed into a

strange short track

it sounds like hissing coming from some

shells recorded with a really bad voice

recorder yes in Jupiter's atmosphere

where storms often occur and the winds

blow at an almost unrealistic speed you

can also see lightning the sound it made

was called the Whistler as it sounds so

much like a whistle so that's how an

uninhabited planet sounds but here on

earth of course everything should be

different right well there are about 8

billion people on our planet were just

people but we create a lot of noise

there are also animals and birds and the

sounds of the river seas and oceans it

seemed to me that the earth should be

the loudest planet in the solar system

but in fact it sounds are not at all

what I thought

creig a kletzing used a tool called

emphasis for many years to study

different types of electromagnetic waves

in near-earth space the scientist was

particularly interested in the so-called

Van Allen belts the Earth's radiation

belts people don't notice the activity

in these areas and of course never hear

what's happening but if you convert the

radio waves into audio format you can

hear something strange for example some

of these waves sound like a chorus of

alien birds

others sound like the lightsaber in Star

Wars however this isn't the only case in

which scientists have managed to capture

the cosmic voice of the earth a

satellite launched by NASA's polar

mission made this recording

which sounds something like panting and

these aren't even all of the sounds the

earth makes scientists have discovered

that when the magneto caused the

outermost boundary of the Earth's

protective magnetic field collides with

a stream of solar plasma it vibrates and

this also sounds quite strange and now

we'll leave our planet and again turn to

space but this time we'll turn to an

image the Hubble Space Telescope

captured in 2018 because of the huge

number of galaxies in its frame

researchers call this photo the Galactic

treasure chest each of the galaxies

spots on it is home to countless stars

could such a picture be made even more

amazing well yes they can make it sing


NASA decided to turn the image into

music each point in the image makes its

own sound stars and small galaxies

respond with short notes and large

spiral galaxies produce longer and more

complex sounds their tone also depends

on their location the lower they are the

rougher the note sounds the result is an

eerie and slightly disturbing cosmic

tune On January 14 2005 the Huygens

probe landed on Saturn's moon Titan

since Titan unlike many other celestial

bodies has an atmosphere sound waves

propagate there when the device landed

there it recorded sounds through a

microphone transmitted them to an

antenna which remained in orbit and from

there they were sent to the earth so now

we can hear what Titan sounds like

like an old and somewhat frozen 8-bit

game not the nicest sound in the

universe so let's move on I don't know

why but some cosmic tunes somehow sound

really frightening the spacecraft Juno

entered Jupiter's orbit in 2016 its

mission was to study its atmosphere

build a map of its winds and also

examine its gravitational and magnetic


now don't forget about its magnetosphere

it was during Juno's entrance into this

that they managed to record these sounds

sounds that send goosebumps up and down

my spine now these particular sounds are

like the soundtrack of a horror movie

the right kind of horror film where the

director skillfully pumps the atmosphere

and the feeling of anxiety increases

with each passing second this bass

melody was recorded by Voyager 1 which

appeared in interstellar space in

essence these sounds are data from a PWS

or plasma wave device this device

recorded the oscillations of electron

fields in the plasma around the probe

and now finally a quite unique sound

file all of the cosmic melodies that

I've mentioned so far were recorded near

planets other objects or even at the

exit from a heliosphere this one is

straight from a surface the insight

robotic apparatus was created

specifically to study Mars and not just

to walk on its surface but to dig into

its depths figuratively of course

insight landed on Mars on November 26

2018 to begin studying its insides its

core crust mantle their temperatures and

more for this purpose a seismograph was

built into the device and not in vain on

April 6th 2019 the device recorded its

first probable earthquake or rather in

this sense a Mars quake it was the first

trembling to come from within the planet

and it wasn't the result of wind gusts

the planet sounds were also recorded

it's worth noting that the surface of

Mars is really quiet compared to the

Earth's there the oceans don't roar and

the winds don't rage which means that

insight can detect even the slightest

tremors additionally without tectonic

plates earthquake mechanisms work much

differently on Mars yes

the Red Planet doesn't shake as much as

the earth does but a small step in the

study of Mars is a huge leap for future
