Music/Sound from Space Science Data Let's Listen to Messages from Space

Music from Space ?
DARTS is a library of space science data. We archive "messages" from around the earth, sun, stars, galaxies, and other celestial objects. Most of these messages are in the form of "photons" (electro magnetic radiation) in the optical, radio, infrared, and X-ray bands. In this project, we try to translate these signals into "sounds" or "music". We collaborate with Dr. Uno and his students at Nihon Fukushi University.
We usually see the data in the form of plots or images on computer-display. Instead of seeing, hearing the data might bring us some new idea from the data. Furthermore, we would expect that this project might help blind people enjoy our beautiful universe.
The project started in 2006. Students of Nihon Fukushi University are major contributors, and DARTS scientists and staffs are also the members of this project.
