NASA Released 22 Spooky Sounds From Space

NASA has sent hundreds of spacecrafts in outer space to capture images of the darkest corners of the universe. Some of NASA's spacecrafts are capable of capturing radio emissions and scientists convert these to sound waves - the results sometimes being spooky sounds of the cosmos.

NASA revealed that the odd space sounds were captured as radiowaves, which have now been converted into sound waves of "howling planets" and whispering noises from distant stars.

This Halloween, NASA released 22 spooky sounds from space that will make the hair on the back of your neck stand up. The spacecraft has crossed the boundary of Jupiter's enormous magnetic field, recording the encounter with the bow shock over the course of about two hours on June 24, 2016.

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

NASA also added a description of what these sounds are and how they came to be.

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

Juno Captures the "Roar" of Jupiter: Juno is now orbiting Jupiter. Therefore, it released a series of recordings of the scariest sounds which could be heard in space. An audio picked by the spacecraft shows data from Galileo's Plasma Wave Experiment instrument. These auroras are similar to Earth's northern and southern lights.

Another clip on the celestial soundtrack, "Beware of Jupiter's Largest Moon, Ganymede", was created from NASA's spacecraft, Galileo, making the first flyby of the planet's moon in 1996.

NASA's Cassini spacecraft, which recently ended its ended its epic 13-year stint at Saturn on September 15, also captured eerie-sounding radio emissions from the ringed planet.

In 2011, NASA's Stardust spacecraft flew by the Tempel 1 comet.
