Video: Sounds Of The Cosmos – The Music Of Planets And Stars

Did you know that planets and stars actually give off music? Although space is a virtual vacuum, this does not mean there is no sound in space. Sounds still exists in the form of electromagnetic vibrations and can be detected using specially designed instruments developed by NASA.

These amazing ambient space sounds come from electronic vibrations of the planets, moons and rings, electromagnetic fields of the planets and moons, planetary magnetosphere, trapped radio waves bouncing between the planet and the inner surface of it's atmosphere, charged particle interactions of the planet, it's moons and the solar wind, and from charged particle emissions from the rings of certain planets.

Looking into outer space, we often assume it would be absolutely silent. Little do we realize that the universes is teeming with planetary music. The sounds these planets give off are absolutely breathtaking. Enjoy!
