And it's TERRIFYING: NASA releases audio of what space REALLY sounds like

Nasa has a Halloween special for you: Spooky sounds from space to 'make your skin crawl' NASA's spooky Halloween playlist will give you the chills!

In time for Halloween, NASA has put together a compilation of elusive "sounds" of howling planets and whistling helium that will make your skin crawl.

Now it should be pointed out that these are not the sounds directly recorded from space.

NASA revealed that the odd space sounds were captured as radiowaves, which have now been converted into sound waves of "howling planets" and whispering noises from distant stars.

Although space lacks a proper medium that would allow sound waves to travel, meaning nobody can actually hear your screams, it is, however, neither "empty" or "silent". NASA has compiled a Sound- Cloud playlist of creepy sounds from space that are sure to send a shiver up your spine.

The first, "Juno Crossing Jupiter's Bow Shock", is the sound of NASA's spacecraft moving across the gas giant's magnetic field.

Saturn's Radio Emissions: Saturn is a source of intense radio emissions, which were monitored by the Cassini spacecraft.

Instead, it's the output of data from when astronomers convert the readings captured by various space probes and instruments into audible sound waves. The radio waves are closely related to the auroras near the poles of the planet.

Scientists sometimes translate radio signals into sound to better understand the signals and they have done so in case of Jupiter.

The track on the playlist also captures the eeriest sound from Jupiter's largest moon, Ganymede, through spacecraft Galileo's Plasma Wave Experiment instrument.

This is one of the few true audio-like recordings from space: the sound caused by the Stardust spacecraft passing through the dust of comet Tempel 1, pinging the robot's body with debris.
