NASA’s View of Earth, in Music

Discover what NASA’s Earth data sounds like when it’s turned into music. With each passing Earth Day, the drums get louder. Every sound and instrument tell a story.

The higher the pitch of the music, the more data collected from NASA Earth science missions. The guitar represents the mission launches. The orchestra is split up based on the field of each mission:

• Strings = Atmosphere
• High Woodwinds = Geosphere
• Low Woodwinds = Hydrosphere
• High Brass = Cryosphere
• Low Brass = Biosphere

April 22 marks the 50th anniversary of Earth Day. Listen to the first episode of NASA’s Curious Universe podcast: www.nasa.gov/curiousuniverse
