    Data for the 60-second audio file was collected on Oct. 19, 2020, during an in-flight checkout of the Perseverance rover's camera and microphone system on the journey to Mars. The subdued whirring is from the rover's heat rejection fluid pump. Audio Credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech/DPA

    The Stanford Experimental Physics Lab sonified data from the European Space Agency and NASA's Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO). This humming sound captures the Sun’s natural vibrations and provides scientists with a concrete representation of its dynamic movements.

  • International Space Station siren

    Ever wonder how the International Space Station alarms sounds? This emergency alert is the last thing astronauts on the ISS ever want to hear as they work 400 km above Earth in the vacuum of space. This sound was sent to us by the Columbus Control Centre, near München, Germany, the operations centre for ESA astronauts and the Columbus laboratory, part of the orbiting weightless research centre. The alarm is sounded on the International Space Station to alert astronauts to life-threatening emergencies such as loss of pressure or fire. The astronauts would immediately convene near their Soyuz spacecraft that serve as lifeboats, but these kind of emergencies are extremely rare and the alarm has sounded only a handful of times despite the Space Station having been inhabited since 2000. Most astronauts on a six-month space flight will only ever hear the sound during a practice session. Regular 'fire-drills' are performed to make sure that even in a worst-case scenario everybody knows what to do. Mission controllers from the international partners that run the Space Station in Russia, USA, Europe and Japan re-enact scenarios with the astronauts in space. In critical situations the teams on ground need to communicate efficiently, act quickly and coordinate a solution between each other and the astronauts flying 400 km above them.

    These melodious tones are created at a special frequency in a plasma with a magnetic field. The frequency is set by the number of electrons in a given volume (the electron density) and the strength of the magnetic field. Hence, the frequency of these waves, called upper hybrid waves, can provide a very accurate measure of the density of the plasma; a fundamental property of the Jovian environment of interest to scientists. These emissions were acquired by Voyager 2 as it passed through the outer magnetosphere in 1979.

  • Sounds from InSight's Pressure Sensor on Mars

    Listen to data from the air pressure sensor on NASA's InSight lander, indicating wind blowing by on Mars. The data were sped up by a factor of 100, shortening the duration of the recording and shifting it up in frequency 100 times (a little more than six octaves). JPL manages InSight for NASA's Science Mission Directorate. InSight is part of NASA's Discovery Program, managed by the agency's Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama.

  • 'Cloudforest - Malaysia' - Album sample

    3 minute audio sample from the 80 minute nature soundscape; "Cloudforest - Malaysia", available for download from www.listeningearth.com/LE/product.php?id=120 A chain of rainforested hills run the length of peninsular Malaysia. Mists drift through these mountain forests, condensing and nourishing an abundance of epiphytes, mosses and ferns. In the pre-dawn, a chorus of piping frogs and nocturnal insects gently fills the humid air. With first light, the wonderful diversity of birdlife found here begins to awake. Babblers chatter animatedly, and the whooping of Cuckoo Doves echo through the trees. One of the standout species of the forest is heard, the unusual buzzing call of a Fire-tufted Barbet. A flock of Silver-eared Mesias pass by with much scolding and sweet singing, and the electric cries of a pair of Yellownapes carry through the treetops. For all the tropical diversity, this recording is actually very easy on the ear. There is an organic pace to the changing soundscape; sounds ebbing and flowing gradually as the morning progresses.
