Listen to the sounds of Saturn’s rings hitting NASA’s Cassini spacecraft [Audio]
Waaytv.com reports that NASA’s Cassini spacecraft spent more than a decade studying Saturn and its moons. It arrived at the ringed world in 2004, and it’s finally out of fuel. NASA put it on a crash course with Saturn, but before it dives into the atmosphere, it’s making 22 passes in between Saturn and its rings.
During Cassini’s first dive in between Saturn and its rings, scientists discovered something they were surprised by: the space between Saturn and its rings is almost entirely empty. In fact, NASA even called it “The Big Empty.”
You can actually hear the emptiness, too.
