Radio Plasma Wave recordings from NASA’s Cassini mission

Saturn and its Moon 🛰️✨🎛️

Our Crawick Multiverse test ran on the 15th September 2017 to mark a special day in space. The day that NASA’s Cassini probe ended her mission to Saturn. 

Like the Voyager probes, it’s not all about the photographs: the Cassini Solstice Mission made Plasma wave recordings too.  You can listen to the soft eerie falls of whistling waves giving sonic testimony to a complex interaction between Saturn and Enceladus. A relationship that we knew so much less about before Cassini.

The Cassini-Huygens mission is a cooperative project of NASA, the European Space Agency and the Italian Space Agency. The Cassini orbiter was designed and developed at Jet Propulsion Laboratory and the imaging team stretched across the US and Europe with the imaging operations centre based at the Space Science Institute in Boulder, Colorado led by the incredible Carolyn Porco, who worked on the Voyager mission too.
