  • NASA's Halloween playlist will 'make your skin crawl'

The set of audio files can be accessed via SoundCloud, and you can listen to them below.

Perhaps the most chilling is the sound of Saturn radio emissions, which were initially picked up by the Cassini spacecraft in 2002. "When scientists convert these to sound waves, the results are eerie to hear".

USA space agency NASA has shared a playlist of spooky space sounds that will make your skin crawl in time for the traditional Halloween celebrations.

"Chorus Radio Waves Within Earth's Atmosphere" is the sound of plasma waves rolling through space. That may very well be the case, but that doesn't mean space isn't filled with an abundance of unusual sounds in the form of radio bursts, electromagnetic pulses, solar wind, charged particle bursts and other celestial emissions.


"In regions laced with magnetic fields, such as the space environment surrounding our planet, particles are continually tossed to and fro by the motion of various electromagnetic waves known as plasma waves", NASA explained earlier this year.

For example, some haunting screeching and roaring was produced when Juno crossed into Jupiter's formidable magnetic field - the protective shield that screens the planet from the blasting winds of our home star.

Whatever the case, turning the data into audio makes it sound like screams trying to break through from an ethereal plane. The radio waves are closely related to the auroras near the poles of the planet.

The eerie sound is similar to the emissions recorded on Earth during the aurora borealis in the northern hemisphere. The difference between the high- and low-frequency waves produces the whistling sound. NASA's Stardust spacecraft was bombarded with dust particles from the comet, and this is what can be heard in the recording.
