NASA records sound from Ganymede, one of Jupiter’s moons

Thanks to advances in space technology created in recent years, we have had the privilege to appreciate the increasingly unusual images of the planets that make up our solar system, as well as their moons.

In the case of Jupiter, there have been many high-resolution images obtained of this planet and its moons, one of which is Ganymede, with which we can tell not only what it looks like but also what it looks like.

This is thanks to the effort put in by the ship Junothat recorded a 50 seconds sound I fly over this moon

This material was presented by NASA during the fall meeting of American Geophysical Union (AGU).

When the clip was played, the sound was Similar to that created by a dial-up modem. This record marks the end of the Juno mission that has been exploring Jupiter and its moons for years.

across the tool waves Implanted in Juno, the recording of the sound created by Ganymede could have been done, although this was originally designed for Recording of radio waves and plasma It emerges from Jupiter’s magnetosphere, that is, the bubble of particles that covers the entire planet.

Since Ganymede is a file The only moon in the solar system with a magnetic envelope It is understood that the instrument worked efficiently, recording the data generated by the emission of this element.

Subsequently the data was processed and transferred to an audio range to make the recording.

Regarding the audio recorded by Juno, this ship’s principal investigator and member of the Southwest Research Institute in San Antonio, Scott Bolden, expressed the following:

«This soundtrack makes you feel like you’re traveling the length of Juno and sailing Ganymede for the first time in more than two decades.».

Notably, days before NASA got the sound, the agency announced that Juno would be just over a distance from A thousand kilometers from GanymedeWhich represented the perfect opportunity to study this moon.

This feat has not been repeated since 2000 when he was Galileo probe passed from there.
