I love when scientists find ways to present weird audio. In this example, boffins and musicians figured out a way to capture the sound of the Earth’s magnetic field, which is created by the swirling molten iron near the planet’s core. Gathering data from the European Space Agency’s Swarm satellites, they managed to bring art and science together.
This clip captures the sound of the magnetic field as well as a solar storm that hit us in November 2011. You can hear the moment the storm starts (the rattlesnake sound). Later, we hear something that sounds almost like eerie voices. It’s a nice Halloween soundtrack.
