Huygens: alien wind descent

Jul 29, 2019, 03:11 PM

Recording by the European Space Agency.

Audio data collected by the Huygens Atmospheric Structure Instrument (HASI), which includes an acoustic sensor, during Huygens' descent, 14 January 2005. 

This recording is a laboratory reconstruction of the sounds heard by Huygens' microphones. 

Several sound samples, taken at different times during the descent, are here combined together and give a realistic reproduction of what a traveller on board Huygens would have heard during one minute of the descent through Titan's atmosphere.
