NASA releases spooky "sounds" of "howling" space

Representatives of the Department believe that the sounds "of howling planets" and whistling helium "will surely make your skin crawl".

NASA has sent hundreds of spacecrafts in outer space to capture images of the darkest corners of the universe.

Nasa explains that these eerie space sounds were actually captured as radiowaves.

"Juno Captures the "Roar" of Jupiter" where NASA's Juno spacecraft crossed the boundary of Jupiter's magnanimous magnetic field. Halloween or Hallowe'en, also known as Allhalloween, All Hallows' Eve, or All Saints' Eve, is a celebration observed in a number of countries on 31st October, the eve of the Western Christian feast of All Hallows' Day.

NASA scientists also use a process called data sonification to translate radio signals into sound.

The content of the spooky audio files comes from the radio emissions produced by planets, plasma waves, and a comet.


When Juno entered Jupiter's orbit past year, the planet's magnetic field collided with the solar wind (charged particles released by the sun).

Some of the featured sounds include futuristic blips taken from Saturn's poles and the chorus of metallic chirps of plasma waves rolling through the vacuum of space near Earth.

The eerie sound is similar to the emissions recorded on Earth during the aurora borealis in the northern hemisphere.

The emissions converted to sounds for the playlist were picked up by spacecraft including Juno, Kepler, Voyager, Stardust, Cassini, and other probes.

Another recording - Sounds of a Comet Encounter - features sounds of rocks and dust particles colliding with the Stardust Aircraft, as comet Tempel 1 flies by on February 14, 2011.
