There’s no sound in space. At least, not in the way that most people think about sound. But today’s astronomers monitor many radio waves and emissions from space that can be converted into what we recognize as sounds. U.Va Astronomer Ed Murphy brings a collection of fascinating recordings to WINA and explains what can be heard from the far reaches of space. Examples include Voyager crossing out of the solar system, charged particles in Saturn’s magnetic field, plusars, and even the sound of the Big Bang. This is one podcast you do not want to miss!
