Listen to the song of the Sun (yes, that big bright thing in the sky)

The Sun sings? Sort of.

Stanford Experimental Physics Lab took data from the European Space Agency and NASA’s Solar and Heliospheric Observatory and converted it into sound. What we end up hearing are sonic representations of things like solar flares, solar wind and all the bubbling that goes on inside the Sun.

And it’s not just for art’s sake. These sounds give solar scientists a better idea of what’s happening inside our star.
