Scientists have recorded the sounds that the satellite of Jupiter “makes”

Researchers from the United States have released a 50-second audio track in which you can hear the “sound” of Ganymede, a satellite of Jupiter.

The recording was made during a close flyby over Ganymede of the Juno space probe on June 7, 2021 and unveiled on December 16 at a meeting of the American Geophysical Union.

The sounds in the video are digital processing of the “sound” of electric and magnetic radio waves in the magnetosphere of Jupiter. The vibrations were translated into frequencies that the human ear can pick up.

“If you listen closely, you will be able to hear a sharp transition to higher frequencies about the middle of the recording — this is the moment of entry into another region of the Ganymede magnetosphere,” Scott Bolton from the Southwest Research Institute in San Antonio, chief researcher of the Juno project, commented on the recording.
