NASA has collected the creepiest, most creepy sounds in the universe and compiled them into a well-timed playlist. Halloween.
“Sinister Sounds of the Solar System,” a bone-chilling new playlist run by NASA, isn’t the typical Halloween song you might get used to. Instead of howling wolves and creaking haunted houses, this list is instead filled with creepy moans, cracks and other strange noises from around the universe.
The playlist is “filled with new ̵6;whines’ and ‘whistles’ from our universe that might scare the most frightening devils” according to a NASA statement.

Some of the tracks on the playlist are sounds of “marsquakes”, created from data collected by NASA’s Mars InSight lander. To record these earthquakes, the lander uses the Seismic for Interior Structures (SEIS) device, which is first “heard” in 2019.
You can also hear “sounds of ancient universes” on this playlist with the permission of the European Space Agency’s Planck spacecraft, from 2009 to 2013, which studied the cosmic microwave background. pillar (CMB), light left over from the Big Bang. Ancient sound waves left their mark on this early light, and Planck was, therefore, able to “essentially see the echoes of the early universe,” according to a NASA statement.
NASA’s Juno spacecraft orbiting Jupiter offers a more mysterious “track”. During his fourth close to the giant planet, which occurred on February 2, 2017, Juno observed plasma wave signals coming from the ionosphere of Jupiter, an atmospheric layer with a high concentration of ions and loose electrons. While there, the spacecraft’s Waves instrument, which measures radio waves and plasma waves in the planet’s atmosphere, recorded these waves and could be heard in a playlist.
The list even includes sounds generated from data from NASA’s Chandra X-ray observatory, which observes the supermassive black hole at the center of the Milky Way galaxy, among objects and manifestations. other cosmic statues.
To enjoy the holiday spirit even more, space fans can download new NASA posters depicting cosmic versions of classic horror and sci-fi movies. Check them out here.
