The Sounds Of Saturn

The Sounds Of Saturn
The Cassini spacecraft has been detecting intense radio emissions from the planet Saturn. They come from the planet's aurora, where magnetic field lines thread the polar regions. These signals have been shifted into the range of human hearing.

This is interesting... indeed. These tones are emitted as radiowaves. There is evidence suggesting that each tone produced is the direct result of a meteriod on the icy chunks which comprise Saturn's rings.
