Explore space with new audio from NASA

NASA has released several audio files to the public that are available to download for free via the image below. Audio clips range from interstellar sounds to the rumble of a rocket, or a lighting storm on Jupiter.

For history students, there are clips from famous speeches, including John F. Kennedy’s “We Choose the Moon” speech.

Or maybe your student is like me and just finds space unbelievably interesting.  They can browse the files and listen to the original audio from actual missions, including Neil Armstrong’s “One Small Step” speech.

You can download the files and use them in interesting ways. For example, you can make a ringtone so every time you get a text it sounds like NASA is trying to get in touch with you. Or, if you or your student is a little more creative, the sound files can be incorporated into larger projects.

Is your student is interested in making movies or music? Use these sounds for some awesome sound effects, or give the film an authentic feel by using some dialogue from the command center. Intergalactic sounds can be incorporated into a new track.

If your student is interested in space, NASA has some amazing resources to encourage them to learn more about our galaxy.

Will your student be using any of these files creatively? Be sure to share in the comments.
