In 1977, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration aka NASA launched two unmanned probes dubbed Voyager 1 and Voyager 2. While no humans were aboard, what was placed within each probe was a gold record containing greetings in different languages, music from around the world and sounds of earth. NASA hoped if found by another civilization, the records would highlight what the human race and the planet we inhibit is all about.
Well now it appears, space has returned the favour. Thanks to NASA, you can now scroll through a huge cache of space sounds recorded over several decades by the U.S. agency.
Best of all, anyone is free to use or repurpose them anyway they want (with some limitations). So now, you can finally get that Cassini: Enceladus Sound you’ve been searching for to really give your self-produced science fiction thriller that extra panache.
Give the full story a read and check out some of the sounds here.
