Hear the Sounds of the Falcon Heavy Launch with This Binaural Recording

via CDM

Watching space exploration is stunning. But hearing it is essential, too – and if you haven’t yet, you really want to hear the Falcon Heavy launch like this.

The Sound Traveler is a YouTube channel that offers “3D” sound experiences using binaural recording, a recording technique that more closely captures sound the way it would enter your head. (The technique is far from perfect, because head and ear shapes are different, but it at least records some of the way sound naturally reaches your inner ears.)

And, lucky them, they got to the top of Cape Canaveral’s Vehicle Assembly Building, where the Space Shuttle tiles were applied and the Apollo rockets were prepped, to hear the Falcon Heavy launch. That’s a rocket the size of which this launchpad hasn’t seen in some years – so you can bet it made a heck of a noise.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
