NASA joins SoundCloud, uploads the sounds of space

Streaming music sites aren’t just for the realm of professional musicians. NASA has started using SoundCloud to upload recordings made in space, giving us earth-bound civilians exposure to exactly what goes on over our heads.

The NASA uploads include clips of famous conversations between astronauts and mission control (yes, the famous “One small step for man” and “Houston, we’ve had a problem” are there), the launch roar of a shuttle taking off, and even the eerie sounds of radiation and radio waves traveling through space.
