Sun Songs Sonified by the Stanford Experimental Physics Lab

By , in News on . Tagged width: ,

Today we’re having a tune in on Sounds of the Sun, which is audio recorded by the ESA and NASA and prepared for the ears of a human. These sounds made their appearance together with data caught by the ESA (which stands for European Space Agency) and NASA’s Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO for short). After the information was recorded, it was sonified by the Stanford Experimental Physics Lab.

What does that mean?

To sonify is to outline a sound. That is, to put an arrangement of standards between one data set and one final result – an arrangement of mapped sounds. This is a strategy with which incomprehensible, un-seeable, or generally out of reach information can be devoured.

    1. Kosovichev, fro =m Stanford Experimental Physics Lab is the one who began the whole thing with doppler speed information. He found the averaged over the solar disk – so just methods of low precise degree (l = 0, 1, 2) remained, as composed Katie Atkinson and Micheala Sosby from NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center for NASA spot GOV. It resulted in removing the shuttle motion impacts, instrument tuning, and some misleading focuses.

At that point, Kosovichev sifted the information at around three MHz to choose clean stable waves, not supergranulation and instrumental commotion. At long last, he added over the missing information and then scaled the information, which was speeded it up with a factor 42,000 to carry it into the capable of being heard human-hearing range (kHz)). Additional solar sounds can be found on the distinctly Web 1.0 website Sanford SOI website.

The SoundCloud file can be found everywhere on the internet. It was made at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center. The authors were Katie Atkinson and Micheala Sosby.
