Cool stellar sounds

BBC NEWS | Science & Environment | Team records ‘music’ from stars

Astronomers are increasingly listening into stars and other space sounds, according to Dr Tim O’Brien, of Manchester University’s Jodrell Bank Centre for Astrophysics.

It’s interesting in itself,” he said, “it’s also scientifically useful.”

Dr O’Brien has collected his favourite space sounds in the Jodrell Bank podcast, known as the Jodcast.

Long ago, a couple of my professors did a recording of the sound of the solar system, enormously speeded up, of course. Great to listen to for half a minute or so. The BBC clips are pretty much the same — I’d love to attach them to a bunch of system sounds.
