Astronomy Science ~ Scientists successfully listen to the 'voice of the mysterious' produced by the comet when driving through the inner Solar System. By using the Rosetta spacecraft, the European Space Agency (ESA) to hear the sound that produced by Comet 67P / Churyumov-Gerasimenko. This comet sound produced by the "oscillations in the magnetic field within the comet," ESA officials said in a statement.

Rosetta could take this strange sound echoes, but if the man floating next to this comet, he will not hear any noise at all. Comet 67P / CG sing under frequency that can be heard by the human ear.

The scientists who discovered this sound is still not sure how sound it made, even though they have some ideas. ESA scientists think that the sound produced when neutral particles of comet chipped into space and generate electricity through ionization, but astronomers are still not sure how the oscillations work.

"This is exciting because it is completely new for us," said Karl-Heinz Glaßmeier, head of the Space Physics and Space Sensorics at the Technische Universität Braunschweig, Germany, said in a statement. "We did not expect this and we are still working to understand the physics of what is happening."

You can listen to his voice here:

Magnetometer experiment Rosetta's first record sound when flying within about 62 miles (100 kilometers) from the surface of the comet in August. This magnetometer is part of a suite of five instruments, called Rosetta Plasma Consortium (RPC). The instrument is designed to monitor how the comet interacts with the solar wind and plasma emitted by the sun. RPC also can see the structure of the comet's atmosphere, known as "coma." (Glaßmeier is also the principal investigator RPC.)
