Listen as NASA transforms stunning space photos into cosmic music (video)

NASA has released three new ‘musical pieces’ based on astronomical observations of distant stars, black holes and galaxies by an X-ray telescope in space. 

Based on X-ray observations by NASA’s Chandra X-ray Space Telescope and other ground and space-based telescopes, each of the new pieces reflects the distinct nature of each of the celestial objects. Scientists created them with a technique called sonification that translates observational data into sounds.
