Music of the sun

What would it sound like if you could stand in the corona of the sun? It would sound like this, according to scientists at the University of Sheffield in the UK:

“The harmonious sounds are caused by the movement of giant magnetic loops in the solar corona – the outermost, mysterious, and least understood layer of the Sun’s atmosphere. Most importantly, the team studied how this sound is decaying, giving an unprecedented insight into the physics of the solar corona,” according to a release from the university’s Project Sunshine.

  • Sounds like this should have been in the soundtrack to the recent SF movie!
