Saturn’s Radio Emissions

The Cassinin-Huygens mission to Saturn and Titan has captured radio emissions from Saturn. The two researchers who have published their findings describe the eerie-sounding emissions as a "Halloween soundtrack".
I think they’re wrong; the sounds are strongly reminiscent of Louis and Bebe Barron’s soundtrack for Forbidden Planet. Listen to "Once around Altair" here, for example.

About Geoff Coupe

I'm a British citizen, although I have lived and worked in the Netherlands since 1983. I came here on a three year assignment, but fell in love with the country, and one Dutchman in particular, and so have stayed here ever since. On the 13th December 2006 I also became a Dutch citizen.
