Sirens of Titan

July 4, 2007

The Cassini probe recorded these radio waves emanating from the auroral poles of Saturn.  They’ve been condensed down from 27 minutes to 70 some seconds… and dropped to a frequency that we can hear… but still… this is what Saturn sounds like.

Fair warning… it’s nightmarish.  Still… it’s lovely to think that a world so far away from us is wailing in the dark.

Go listen… just do it with the lights on.
