Last one sounds like Forbidden Planet. Is this a hoax?

This is awesome. It sounds like the stuff I hear on the late night ‘Echoes” radio show.
I suppose these audio recordings are in the public domain since they result from taxpayer funding. It wouldn’t surprise me if some alternative musician used these audio files as the foundation of a ‘New Age’ symphony. Heck, maybe I will....

The second recording sounds like it could be an Atari racing game. The last one was very cool. Would make a great sci-fi movie soundtrack.

Sound in space? The medium free vacuum of space? How exactly is that possible?

I think that only happens in the movies.

This is radio waves I presume, synthesized into sound.

Quoting from her website...

“Described by Time Magazine as “a cross between Carl Sagan and Madonna”, astrophysicist, author and recording artist Dr. Fiorella Terenzi received her doctorate in physics from the University of Milan, has studied opera and composition at Conservatory G. Verdi, and taught mathematics and physics at Liceo Scientifico, Milan. In research at the Computer Audio Research Laboratory, University of California, San Diego, she developed techniques to convert radio waves from galaxies into sound - released by Island Records on her acclaimed CD “Music from the Galaxies””.

"This is an audio file of radio emissions from Saturn."

This is BS. "Radio" emissions are not audible (to humans).
