Actual Sound of Space – NASA Voyager Recordings – YouTube

I am listening to the sound from Voyager:  eerie, distant, like nothing I have heard or maybe birdsong at the beginning of the day mixed with whale song and the wind. Weird.  Chills me like cold wind at night looking at the sky; moon lit; frigid.  We humans are so insignificant in the vast ancient universe.  Beautiful.

Enhanced by ZemantaWhat is this sound, there is no sound in space its a vacuum?  Quote from the Youtube page “its a mixture of cosmic radiation and other anomalies that are converted through instruments into audio signals. Just like how static on a TV or radio is cosmic radiation left over from the big bang, same concept”.

    Cameras aboard the Voyagers were turned off long ago. The nuclear-powered spacecraft, about the size of a subcompact car, still have five instruments to study magnetic fields, cosmic rays and charged particles from the sun known as solar wind. They also carry gold-plated discs containing multilingual greetings, music and pictures — in the off chance that intelligent species come across them.
