Space storms – the sun synth

June 23, 2010 · Posted in Uncategorized 

Space Storms can sometimes go a bit crazy, and can cause all sorts of havoc on earth, like destroying electronics, killing power grids and wrecking satellites. NASA claims that we should experience such a storm sometime around 2013.

The scientists translated measurements the vibrations into sound (as the sound itself cannot travel through the near-vacuum of space), and sped up the resulting waveforms to put them into the range of human hearing. Other than just producing some pretty amazing sounds, “sun music” has other uses as well. Professor Robertus von Fáy-Siebenbürgen, head of the solar physics research group at Sheffield University, said:

Studying the “music of the sun” would provide new ways of understanding and predicting solar flares before they happen.

Here’s a sample of what the SunSynth sounds like:
