These sounds made from a flyby of Jupiter’s moon Europa are haunting

[ad_1]

An eerie new video allows us to hear what NASA’s Juno spacecraft experienced as it made a flyby of Jupiter’s icy moon Europa last month.

The 11-second-long audio track expresses variations of plasma frequency, using data collected by Juno over 90 minutes as it made a flyby of Europa on Sept. 29. Converting this data into sound — data sonification — allows us to hear the variation of frequency of the plasma waves observed by Juno near Europa as the plasma density changes.
