Here are a compilation of recordings made in space, recorded by either NASA or SETI. I don’t know, I just really like space and the sounds can be soothing. I hope that you will agree. +more masterposts 

+listen
Recordings Of Earth: Recorded by NASA.
Jupiter sound waves: This is the sound Jupiter emits via electromagnetic waves.
Wow! signal: The Wow! Signal is a signal of unknown origin found by SETI. The signal surpirsed the founder so much, he wrote WOW! right on the paper.
Jupiter’s radio Waves: These sounds, recorded by the Cassini space probe, are recordings of the radio waves of Jupiter. 
Saturn’s Radio Emissions: This audio was recorded by the Cassini spacecraft picked up in April of 2002.
More Saturn’s Radio Emissions: This audio was recorded by the Cassini spacecraft picked up in April of 2002.
Uranus: Voyager recording of Uranus.
Mercury: These sounds were captured from an orbiting satellite from back in 1999 - 2001 I think.
Pluto: Sounds of the lonely planet.
Neptune: Recorded by Voyager II August 24-25, 1989.
Saturn’s rings: Recorded by Voyager 2 on 25 August 1981.
Sounds of the Sun: From the Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) which was launched February 11, 2010.
Outside the Solar System: NASA’s Voyager 1 spacecraft captured these sounds of interstellar space. November 2012

+bonus
The Sounds of Earth: The full five hours of the mixtape we sent out on both the Voyager probes.
Voyager Photo Album: Images voyager took.
USS Enterprise (NCC-1701-D): Engine hum for 24 hours.

There may not be sound IN space, but that doesn’t mean we don’t make a whole lot of cool ones FROM it.

One of my very first OKTBS YouTube videos was about space sounds. It features some not listed above, tune in here:

Here are a couple images of Alan Davis on this, his birthday weekend.  First image captures his rig well: trumpet, Akai Synthstation 49 with iPad, and Fender tele through Bugera combo.  A truly multi-instrument multi-instrumentalist.  Plus, a total sweetheart.  And now, an old(er) man.  
Check out his writing chops on tunes like Les Anciens, Mariner, and Phaethon 2 on “The Geminids."

I don’t know what you think you’re doing right now (5:24PM EDT) but my friend Nick Jenkins is playing songs on 90.5 FM Columbia and I’m loving the beauty and chaos.  You should listen.  Like, now.  Wherever you are.  Stream it.  

Don’t feel so afraid anymore.
