The Juno Spacecraft Captures the Roaring Song of Jupiter

If all goes well, the Juno spacecraft will enter a polar orbit of Jupiter today after a journey of 1.7 billion miles. About ten days ago, it crossed into the realm of Jupiter’s magnetic field, the spot where supersonic solar wind is heated up and then slowed. Juno recorded this “bow shock” and turned transmitted the sound back to Earth. Someone needs to sample this for some kind of electronic/industrial composition. Cool!
