Listen: What the Earth Sounds Like from Space
Unless aliens are really into ornithology, they might be giving Earth a pass based on how it sounds from space.
NASA has released a recording of a phenomenon called “chorus“, which consists of radio signals caused by plasma waves found in our planet’s Van Allen radiation belts. In short, these signals broadcast into space make our planet’s soundtrack sound something akin to a whale or exotic bird. It’s most commonly heard in the mornings, which is why it is often referred to as the “Dawn Chorus”.
All in all, it’s yet another bizarre and wonderful capture of our planet’s constant hum in the cosmos. Check it out below.
