Saturn Plays the Theramin, Poorly
Alex Steffen, 27 Jul 05

One of the coolest things about getting to know our solar system is not only that we gain concrete insight into the workings of our own planet (the whole Greens in Space argument), but that we glimpse through other senses the movements of the spheres, as it were.

Take, for instance, this trippy recording of the radio signals emitted from Saturn. We're on a tiny rock, people, hurtling through the vast, cold, empty reaches of space -- and things like this are the soundtrack.

(Thanks, Bruce)

I guess the 1970s sci-fi musicians had it right all along.

Decided to dig more stuff on the NASA site, found an article entitled Cassini Reveals Saturn's Eerie-Sounding Radio Emissions that links to the soundtrack.
