Cool Video Of The Week

Without a doubt, this cogent exposition from scientists at JPL outlining a vision for the future of Mars Exploration is the Cool Video of the Week: with a new polar lander and life seeking rovers in the pipeline, and the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter arriving on March 10, the invasion of outer cyberspace is sure to continue.

This audio clip was created from radio signals received by the radio and plasma wave science instrument on the Cassini spacecraft, during a massive storm on Saturn’s dark side on January 23 and 24, 2006. The clip compresses two hours of observations into about 28 seconds.
