What Does NASA Sound Like?


When you think of NASA, do certain sounds and/or soundbites come to mind?

“3…2…1…0 and Liftoff!”

“That’s one small step,….”

“Ignition sequence start…”

“We’re on our way Houston!”

You can now listen to a collection of distinct NASA sounds at the NASA Sounds website where you can download various clips for ringtones, or for your computer errors, alarms and notifications, or just add to your audio collection.

“NASA has been making historic sounds for over 50 years,” said Jerry Colen, NASA App project manager at the agency’s Ames
Research Center in Moffett Field, Calif. “Now we’re making some of these memorable sounds easy to find and use.”

The NASA sounds are available in both MP3 and M4R (iPhone) files, and also includes the sounds of spacecraft beeping and crackling. NASA will update the collection as new sounds become available.
