NASA brings space horror to Halloween

Nasa just shared a playlist of spooky space sounds, just in time for Halloween, which the space agency says is "sure to make your skin crawl".

NASA has sent hundreds of spacecrafts in outer space to capture images of the darkest corners of the universe.

Instead this is data collected by instruments capable of receiving radio waves that NASA's scientists have then examined, and converted into audio files. "When scientists convert these to sound waves, the results are eerie to hear", NASA explained.

United Kingdom economic growth strengthens in third quarter to 0.4 per cent
There was no change to the annual rate of growth which remained at 1.5%, beating market expectations of a dip to 1.4%. Manufacturing also boosted the economy with an improved performance after a weak second quarter.

In classic NASA fashion, the playlist also includes an explanation of what listeners are actually hearing in the sound clips.

The playlist features sounds of howling planets, plasma waves and a comet encounter.

When Juno entered Jupiter's orbit previous year, the planet's magnetic field collided with the solar wind (charged particles released by the sun). Therefore, it released a series of recordings of the scariest sounds which could be heard in space. These were captured by Cassini as it investigated the auroras on the Jupiter's poles.

The auroras seen at Saturn are similar to Earth's northern and southern lights and occur when solar wind material interacts with the planet's atmosphere and magnetic field.

Saturn appeared to also produce a spooky version of Star Trek-like sound effects thanks to its source of intense radio emissions. On June 27, 1996, the Galileo spacecraft made the first flyby of Jupiter's largest moon, Ganymede, and this audio track represents data from Galileo's Plasma Wave Experiment instrument.

Next up are the plasma waves, like the roaring ocean surf, captured using the EMFISIS instrument aboard NASA's Van Allen Probes. An instrument on its protective shield was pelted by about 5,000 dust particles and small rocks.
