Space Has Never Sounded Scarier Than on NASA's Halloween Playlist

NASA releases spooky “sounds” of “howling” space

Just in time for Halloween, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration released a playlist of "spooky sounds" from outer space, recorded by its spacecraft across the solar system.

NASA spacecrafts are actively exploring the cosmos through its advanced spacecrafts and while images of stunning celestial bodies are released on regular basis, release of sounds aren't that common.

Instead this is data collected by instruments capable of receiving radio waves that NASA's scientists have then examined, and converted into audio files.

Some of these radio signals were translated into sounds to understand the signal better, the process also known as "data sonification".

These waves can be generated by anything from entire planets to helium.

According to Nasa's creepy space music playlist, the eeriest sounds appear to be coming from Jupiter and its various giant moons.

Although space lacks a proper medium that would allow sound waves to travel, meaning nobody can actually hear your screams, it is, however, neither "empty" or "silent".

Juno Captures the "Roar" of Jupiter: Juno is now orbiting Jupiter. "These plasma waves, like the roaring ocean surf, create a rhythmic cacophony that - with the right tools - we can hear across space", Nasa said earlier this year. The radio waves are closely related to the auroras near the poles of the planet.

Sounds of Jupiter, for example, were captured in 1996 when the Galileo spacecraft made its first flyby of the planet's largest moon. Saturn's radio emissions sound like a robot crying for help in the midst of a wind storm.

Sounds of a comet encounter are part of the compilation as well.

You can find the full playlist on SoundCloud.
