A Quick Look at Data Sonification: Sounds from Around the Milky Way

Would you like to "listen" to the center of the Milky Way? A new project takes images from NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory and other telescopes and turns them into sounds. This process, called sonification, translates the positions and brightness in the telescopes' images into different intensities and volumes. Sonification allows different audiences — including blind and visually-impaired communities — to explore space through data. The new sonification project has also turned images from the supernova remnant Cassiopeia A and the "Pillars of Creation" into sounds.
