LISTEN: NASA shares symphony of the stars by turning telescope data into beautiful, haunting music

Not content with blowing minds around the world with incredible images of our universe, NASA has taken data from telescopes observing the galactic center of the Milky Way and created a celestial symphony.

NASA regularly takes digital data from distant telescopes and turns them into breathtaking images. These images are composites of various wavelengths of light and radiation that the human eye can’t see.

In an effort to outdo themselves, NASA boffins have taken things to the next level and ‘sonified’ the stars, using this same digital telescope data to create short cosmic concerts.

Sonification is the process by which data, in the form of a binary code or a slew of ones and zeros, is translated into sound rather than imagery.
