NASA has unveiled a new project that involves converting data from astronomical images to audio using sonication.

What is the sound of the stars? This is the question that NASA scientists from the Chandra X-ray observatory want to answer. Translating the data from this telescope together with those obtained by the Hubble and Spitzer space telescopes, they have sonified the center of our galaxy, the Milky Way, creating visual and auditory representations that make up something like “the soundtrack” of our cosmic neighbourhood located 26,000 light-years from Earth.

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) presented an interesting musical project. Scientists have voiced photographs of the center of the Milky Way, the Pillars of Creation and Cassiopeia A.

NASA has used the same method that astronomers use to translate digital data from telescopes into images.

The image of the center of the galaxy was taken using X-rays, visible and infrared light.

The necessary data was collected by the Chandra space X-ray observatory, the Hubble and Spitzer space telescopes. The devices picked up different signals, so each was assigned a different musical instrument.
