NASA’s Juno probe analyzing the electromagnetic waves of Ganymede, one of Jupiter’s moons, captured a chilling sound
The Space it is full of fascinating mysteries. A new discovery happens every day. There NASA in fact through its probe Juno, on a mission around Jupiter since 2016 but launched 5 years earlier, it captured a very distinctive sound set by Ganymede, one of the gas giant’s moons. The celestial body has special characteristics as it is larger than Mercury, so much so that it has its own magnetic field, and hides a huge ocean of salt water 200 kilometers below its surface.
NASA records an eerie sound from Ganymede
Juno recorded the electromagnetic waves emitted by Ganymede through the instrument Waves. The latter when moved to the audio range produce an incredible sound to make the skin crawl. “This soundtrack is wild enough to make you feel like you are traveling as the probe passes Ganymede for the first time in more than two decades. – declared the physicist Scott Bolton of the Southwest Research Institute – If you listen closely you can hear the abrupt change at higher frequencies around the midpoint of the recording, which represents entering a different region in the magnetosphere of Ganymede“.
The mission Juno it will last until 2025 and has the primary objective of studying Jupiter and its moons especially as regards the possible presence of liquid water or extraterrestrial life forms.
