    NASA has unveiled an audio recording of plasma waves hitting Earth’s magnetic field.

    According to NASA, charged particles called plasma emanate from the sun and erupt into ultra-low-frequency waves when they journey on the solar wind and collide with the Earth’s magnetic field, “vibrating like the plucked strings of a harp”.

    A new NASA-funded citizen science project called HARP (Heliophysics Audified: Resonances in Plasmas) has now sped up these plasma waves to convert them into audible “whistles, crunches, and whooshes”, which you can listen to below. 

    You can also join the HARP citizen team as a volunteer and check them out using an interactive tool while keeping an ear out for any unusual patterns.
