Rosetta Stalks Dark Comet in Stunning New Selfie
At a distance of only 10 miles from comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko’s surface, the European Rosetta mission has captured yet another dazzling self portrait with the dark comet lurking in the background. But the orbiter couldn’t have snapped this “selfie” without the help of a little friend — the attached Philae lander that is currently undergoing preparations for its historic comet surface landing in November.

So happy to be alive at a time when pictures like this are real.

Here are a compilation of recordings made in space, recorded by either NASA or SETI. I don’t know, I just really like space and the sounds can be soothing. I hope that you will agree. +more masterposts

The signal surpirsed the founder so much, he wrote WOW! right on the paper.Jupiter’s radio Waves: These sounds, recorded by the Cassini space probe, are recordings of the radio waves of Jupiter. Saturn’s Radio Emissions: This audio was recorded by the Cassini spacecraft picked up in April of 2002.More Saturn’s Radio Emissions: This audio was recorded by the Cassini spacecraft picked up in April of 2002.Uranus: Voyager recording of Uranus.Mercury: These sounds were captured from an orbiting satellite from back in 1999 - 2001 I think.Pluto: Sounds of the lonely planet.Neptune: Recorded by Voyager II August 24-25, 1989.Saturn’s rings: Recorded by Voyager 2 on 25 August 1981.Sounds of the Sun: From the Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) which was launched February 11, 2010.Outside the Solar System: NASA’s Voyager 1 spacecraft captured these sounds of interstellar space.

There may not be sound IN space, but that doesn’t mean we don’t make a whole lot of cool ones FROM it.
One of my very first OKTBS YouTube videos was about space sounds. It features some not listed above, tune in here:

For the first time in modern history, the eastern basin of the South Aral Sea has completely dried.

The lake (once the fourth largest in the world) has been shrinking since the 1960’s, when the Soviet Union diverted two rivers to provide irrigation for farms. This year a drop in rain and snow levels lowered the water level even more.
