These eerie space 'sounds' recorded by NASA are creepy enough to make your skin crawl
It's deathly quiet in the vacuum of space, save only for the faint whisper of gravitational waves.
However, space scientists sometimes take signals from beyond the mortal realm of human senses - including radio waves, plasma waves, and magnetic fields - and convert them into audio tracks.
This clever hack is called data sonification, and it helps researchers "hear" what's going on with their far-flung spacecraft around planets, moons, comets, and other locations.
The results are often ear-splitting, but sometimes the audio is downright scary.
Just in time for Halloween, NASA on Thursday released a compilation of 22 outer-space sounds "that is sure to make your skin crawl," the space agency said in a release.
Here are a handful of the spookiest tracks and what they represent.
- Chestnuts: Nature's nutritional powerhouse
- Taylor Swift's ‘Eras Tour’ concert film set to premier in India
- Melting poles: Unprecedented levels of sea ice loss threatens global climate balance
- Peanuts: A nutty marvel of nutrition
- India’s debit card transactions fall but credit card spends rise further
