From the Edge of Saturn by Jay-Dea Lopez | 08:56




The Cassini-Huygens spacecraft was launched from Cape Canaveral in 1997, its primary objective being the study of Saturn’s geology. As the spacecraft neared Saturn in 2002 it began to pick up intense radio waves from the planet’s polar auroras. This sound piece modifies some of the recordings made by the Cassini-Huygens spacecraft.


The sounds include: radio emissions from Saturn, waves of light from Kepler’s Supernova, comet dust hitting the craft, Saturn’s rotation, a rocket launch.
