Earlier today, NASA did something to up their cool factor in this age of underfunding and zero moon-walking—they opened up their sound archive to the public, copyright-free.
Yes, this means being able to listen to and, say, include vintage ‘one small step’ samples to your next spoken word piece. Cooler yet though—chorus radio waves from the Earth’s atmosphere, beeping Sputniks, stardust from comets, sounds from the sixth-largest moon of Saturn, and lightning on Jupiter.
Oh, and this, which I seriously do not understand. Is it space-centric Christian rock? No idea.
Give some of it a listen below. You can browse the massive full catalog of sounds on NASA’s sound cloud page.
