Sounds of Space

In the August Extra 2008 edition of the Jodcast, Dr Stuart Lowe talked to Dr Tim O'Brien (University of Manchester) about the sounds of space. The sounds we played were: The sound of supernova remnant Cassiopeia A recorded by the Lovell Telescope; Whistler waves; Proton Whistlers; Leonid meteor echoes; Jovian Chorus; Jovian S-Burst; Jovian S-Burst speeded up by a factor 128; ESA Huygens lander radar signal; Solar sounds generated from 40 days of Michelson Doppler Imager data and processed by A. Kosovichev; Solar Energetic Particles data from the HELIOS mission; X-ray observations of Cygnus X-1 from the Rossi X-ray Timing Explorer; PSR B0329+54 observations from the Lovell Telescope; Vela pulsar observations; Crab pulsar observations; PSR B1937+21 observations; Pulsars in globular cluster 47 Tuc; Double pulsar eclipse; The first million years of the Universe and the Cosmic Microwave Background.
