NASA has managed to capture a “voiceprint” of what Jupiter’s auroras would sound like following Juno’s maiden voyage around the giant gas planet. During this flyby, the spacecraft’s waves instrument received radio signals associated with the giant planet’s intense auroras. “The signals have been shifted into the audio frequency range and are displayed in a format similar to a voiceprint, showing intensity of waves as a function of frequency and time,” reports the Jet Propulsion Laboratory.

“Fascinating recording of Jupiter sounds (electromagnetic ‘voices’) by NASA-Voyager. The complex interactions of charged electromagnetic particles from the solar wind , planetary magnetosphere etc. create vibration “soundscapes”. It sounds very interesting, even scary,” according to the description.
