The Sounds of Saturn

NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory has just released some pretty wacky audio recordings from the Cassini-Huygens Saturn probe. You can hear the sounds made by Saturn's moons Enceladus and Titan, plus radio waves emanating from the planet's surface. Who knew space actually sounds like a 1930's scif-fi radio play. Kudos to JPL for coming up with an old-school sci-fi logo to match. Incidentally, if you were wondering whatever happened to the Alan Parsons Project, they are apparently alive and well, living somewhere on the swirling gaseous maelstrom that is Saturn's surface.
