Earthsong

The first full picture of the Earth (‘The Blue Marble‘) was taken on December 7 1972, and now forty years later NASA has given us the actual sound of our planet recorded from space.  ‘Earthsong‘ is a recording of the planet’s chorus – radio waves oscillating at acoustic frequencies between 0 and 10kHz, sampled at CD quality.  I don’t know about anyone else, but I am seriously excited by this!
