“In space nobody can hear you scream..”

Some science links to while away a Friday afternoon.. The BBC picks up on a Science Journal report on results from the French Corot space telescope and they have samples of the stellar sounds recorded. They also point to the fascinating Jodcast [Now on YouTube – Ed] where, in the August edition, Dr Tim O’Brien presented his favourite sounds from space [mp3 file] – including the Vela pulsar imaged here. And, in the Jodcast archive, there’s an interview with our favourite Northern Star – Jocelyn Bell Burnell on the discovery of pulsars [mp3 again] – more audible pulsars here. I’m sure Robert Hooke would approve.
