An Italian scientist has taken 37 years worth of data from both Voyager space probes and turned it into music. Listen to the results, they are awesome.
This scientificco-composer, Domenico Vicinanza, is a project manager at Géant — Europe’s high-speed data network that powers Cern and the Large Hadron Collider. He used 320,000 individual measurements of cosmic particle data taken at one-hour intervals using the spacecrafts’ cosmic ray detector.
To make this data sound musical, Vicinanza mapped different frequencies, or detections, to different frequencies of a note. And to distinguish between the two spacecraft, he created a kind of duelling duet by giving each probe its own arrangement and sound texture. (SOURCE)
