Report reveals an experiment that turns visible astronomy data into sounds

NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory has shared a new way to experiment with space, with three new “sonications” that turn visible astronomy data into sounds. And at the wavelength of X-rays by Chandra, when sound moves from left to right across the image, brighter lights are represented by louder sounds, and lights toward the top of the image are louder in pitch.

The second sonication is for Tychos supernova remnant, with sounds starting in the center of the remnant and moving outward, redder colors, indicating iron, are represented by lower tones, and bluer colors indicating sulfur are represented by higher notes.

Sonication of galaxy M87 shows the location of the famous supermassive black hole at its center, as sound sweeps around the image like radar, light closer to the center of the galaxy is represented by higher tones, and light farther from the center is represented by lower tones.

In addition to engaging the general public in science, one of the main goals of the project was to enable blind or visually impaired people to appreciate the wonders of space, explained Kimberly Arcand, Chandras chief scientist.

“Sonication is tested and validated with experts and non-experts who are blind or visually impaired (eg, astrophysicist, amateur astronomer, students),” she said. , while maintaining its accurate representation and telling the story, while providing a new way of conveying meaning through sound.”
