Listening to Lightning – Sound Recording of High Frequency Electromagnetic Waves Captured by the European Space Agency’s Megnetometer
This is only 75 seconds long but I could just as easily put it on loop and fall asleep to sounds like this:
Electromagnetic waves travelling upward from a lightning strike undergo dispersion in the ionosphere. High frequencies travel faster and arrive before the longer waves, giving rise to a whistling tone from high to low recorded by our magnetometer.

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.
