Jenkins' Sonifications

From Jon Jenkins, Kepler Co-Investigator:

Here are two sound files from Kepler-10b that appeared in a New York Times story (2011 Jan 30):

  1. “Raw” data: .mp3 -|- .wav
  2. Processed: .mp3 -|- .wav
    ... to emphasize the transits in a manner similar to how the SOC Pipeline detects transits.

More sounds from Kepler stars....
[ Jon says: I don’t know what’s going on for some of these stars, but they do sound cool!]

[KIC = Kepler Input Catalog number]
