Juno spacecraft records the sound of space on its way to Jupiter

The Waves instrument aboard NASA's Juno spacecraft recorded amateur radio signals from ham radio operators from around the world.

Here you can check out the sounds of Earth's magnetosphere that Juno recoded as it was passing Earth to speed up on its way to Jupiter.

The radio signals were recorded by Juno's Waves instrument trying to catch the "Hi" sent in morse code by 1,400 radio amateurs throughout the world.
