Sounds of Mars, Venus and other planets

05 April 2012, 19:15.

Ever dream of visiting Mars or Venus? The actual trip may be outside your power for most of your body (and outside the government’s willingness to fund), but thanks to the work of some English researchers, at least your ears can take the journey.
Using the laws of physics, scientists at the University of Southampton’s Institute for Sound and Vibration Research have been able to determine exactly how sound travels on other planets, and how those sounds would be interpreted by human ears. The scientists then used software to recreate the sounds of distant planets, from the dust storms of Mars to the sound of a methane fall on Saturn’s largest moon, Titan.
These sounds, and many more, will be unveiled for the first time at the Astrium Planetarium on April 4. “At present, planetariums show great images but there is no real extra-terrestrial sound to accompany them,” explains Professor Tim Leighton, leader of the university’s sound-imagining program. “Some use classical music or make up sound. This is the real deal — it’s as close as we can get to the real sound of another world until a future probe or astronaut actually goes there and listens to what it really sounds like.”
