Using data from the remnants of a dead star, Kimberly Arcand created a sound representation. The results are fittingly far out. Via C-Net:
“Each sonification is created to best portray the scientific data in a way that makes the most sense for the specific data, keeping it accurately represented and telling the story, while also providing a new way of conveying meaning through sound,” Arcand explained in a NASA Q&A.
The latest addition to the collection is the sounds of the Tycho supernova remnant. The sonification uses the Chandra X-ray data, starting at the center and moving outward. Lower and higher notes are assigned to different colors on the spectrum, with redder hues producing lower notes and blue or violet notes translating to higher notes.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
