Jingle, Pluck, and Hum: Sounds from Space

Jingle, Pluck, and Hum: Sounds from Space X-ray: NASA/CXC/RIKEN & GSFC/T. Sato et al; Optical: DSS; Sonification: NASA/CXC/SAO/K.Arcand, SYSTEM Sounds (M. Russo, A. Santaguida)

Space is mostly quiet. Data collected by telescopes is most often turned into silent charts, plots, and images. A "sonification" project led by NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory and NASA's Universe of Learning program transforms otherwise inaudible data from some of the world's most powerful telescopes into sound. This effort makes it possible to experience data from cosmic sources with a different sense: hearing.
