    Ringing of space... then banging on space as a big black hole gobbles a small one...the sound of the big bang... or possibly the sound of multi-verse big bangs...

    Very cool. I really enjoy these TED talks. Thanks Rhody.

    I just realized these are talks I'd like to see in person, so I looked. Seems they're open to the public and listed on their site here: http://www.ted.com/tedx

    They have an interactive map so you can find talks going on near you and get tickets. I wonder if they sell beer at these events???

    Thanks for the talks!

    Sound from Vela Pulsar. It's like a cosmic rave party!


    Also one could find all over youtube similar videos of electromagnetism-turned-sound by the Voyager spacecraft of planets in our Solar System. Most of them could be taken as art! Although I'm not sure how authentic they are. I just don't see how we could receive such clear signals from Voyager being so far away. Maybe we have enough information to reconstruct the signals back on earth? Jupiter as an example below. It's just too good to be true!
