Ever wonder how the universe would sound if we could perceive the radio emissions of distant stars, planets, pulsars, and even more exotic objects?

The universe has a story to tell in these wavelengths, an ancient story going back to the big bang.

There’s much more to the universe than just pretty pictures, there’s music and song in the heavens as well.

Honor Harger talks about amazing audio made from the radiation of distant bodies, and explains her work as an artist and technologist.

The Cosmos is calling us…and we would do well to heed the tales it tells.

There are several videos circulating showing a comparison of the largest stars. I like these kind of things, and I wanted to try one myself. Probably because I also watched “Cosmos” by Carl Sagan as a kid. Actually my first Youtube upload. Hope you like it…
