Listening to the stars reveals a spooky secret

November 4, 2005
I’d read many years ago that scientists sometimes used acoustic systems to interpret data captured from space craft and transmitted back to Earth so they could "listen to the data" to perceive any possible patterns.
Eventually, with all the background noise out there, something interesting would jump out at them.
The NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratories (JPL) in the USA have released some of the spookier sound files created from data captured from spacecraft for Halloween.
By far the weirdest are the radio emissions of Saturn’s auroras.
So, next time you are out walking on a peaceful warm clear night and gaze forlornly up into the silent stars above wondering if there is life out there, remember that the stars & planets are screaming to be heard.
