Listen to the Sounds of Interstellar Space, Recorded by Voyager 1

Voyager 1 was able to record the sounds of interstellar space. This helped the Voyager science team calculate the density of interstellar plasma. Read more about the announcement of Voyager crossing into interstellar space here.

This artist's concept shows the general locations of NASA's two Voyager spacecraft. Voyager 1 (top) has sailed beyond our solar bubble into interstellar space, the space between stars. Its environment still feels the solar influence. Voyager 2 (bottom) is still exploring the outer layer of the solar bubble. Image credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech
