Here are a compilation of recordings made in space, recorded by either NASA or SETI. I don’t know, I just really like space and the sounds can be soothing. I hope that you will agree. +more masterposts
+listen Recordings Of Earth: Recorded by NASA. Jupiter sound waves: This is the sound Jupiter emits via electromagnetic waves. Wow! signal: The Wow! Signal is a signal of unknown origin found by SETI. The signal surpirsed the founder so much, he wrote WOW! right on the paper. Jupiter’s radio Waves: These sounds, recorded by the Cassini space probe, are recordings of the radio waves of Jupiter. Saturn’s Radio Emissions: This audio was recorded by the Cassini spacecraft picked up in April of 2002. More Saturn’s Radio Emissions: This audio was recorded by the Cassini spacecraft picked up in April of 2002. Uranus: Voyager recording of Uranus. Mercury: These sounds were captured from an orbiting satellite from back in 1999 - 2001 I think. Pluto: Sounds of the lonely planet. Neptune: Recorded by Voyager II August 24-25, 1989. Saturn’s rings: Recorded by Voyager 2 on 25 August 1981. Sounds of the Sun: From the Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) which was launched February 11, 2010. Outside the Solar System: NASA’s Voyager 1 spacecraft captured these sounds of interstellar space. November 2012
This temple consists of seven sanctuaries lined up in a row, each of which are dedicated to a different deity (the southernmost of these honours 19th Dynasty Pharaoh Seti I himself). The purpose for the construction of this building was to act as a funerary shrine for Seti I, as confirmed by the name of the building: “The house of millions of years of the King Men-Ma'at-Re [Seti I], who is contented at Abydos." Although he was actually buried in the Valley of the Kings at Thebes, Seti followed the royal tradition of constructing a second funerary complex at Abydos -the cult centre of the Egyptian god Osiris.
The bas-reliefs of this temple are some of the best persevered from ancient Egypt, and many retain the original paint work. A classical, traditional style is evoked by the raised relief decoration carved under Seti I on fine white limestone.
From north to south, the temple is dedicated to the following Egyptian deities: Horus, Isis, Osiris, Amen-Re, Re-Horakhty, and Ptah. Seti restoring the worship of the traditional gods of Egypt after the Amarna period could explain this combined dedication. The aftermath of the Amarna period is also reflected in the "king’s gallery”. This is a rather selective list of legitimate pharaohs from Egyptian history, with the names of Akhenaten, Smenkhkare and Tutankhamen excluded -as though erasing their reigns from recorded history.
Antiquities ministry receives 3,200 yr-old relief from UK
CAIRO: The Antiquities Ministry announced Sunday it received an ancient Egyptian wall relief that was repatriated in October by Egypt’s embassy in London.
The painted limestone wall relief was delivered to the Egyptian embassy in London after its owner, who bought it from a British antiquities collector, learnt it had been stolen and smuggled out of Egypt, Antiquities Minister Mamdouh al Damaty said in a statement Sunday.
The artifact dates back to the reign of the 19th Dynasty Pharaoh Seti I (1290 B.C. – 1279 B.C.) Damaty said, adding that it will be displayed at the Egyptian Museum in Cairo.
It measure approximately 43cm (17.2 inches) by 67 cm with carvings representing Pharaoh Seti I making offerings before Anubis, the mummification God and Hathor, ancient Egyptian motherhood Goddess, he added. Read more.
sketch depicts a king wearing the “blue crown,” a collar, and two
strings of gold beads. His stubble beard is a sign of mourning. The
features of the king make it likely that Seti I is represented. The
elaborate execution of the royal image, which is without doubt the work
of a master painter, differs from the depiction of the two hands. This
sketch was probably a model for trainees, and was later reused for other
training purposes by an experienced artist. It is interesting that the
painter of the royal head has chosen the topic of a stubble-bearded
king, which was not part of the official motifs. Photograph by Mary Harrsch Piece on view at Walters Art Museum, Baltimore, Maryland.
Remains of a 7,000-Year-Old Lost City Discovered in Egypt
Archaeologists working in Egypt have made an unprecedented find of an unknown city containing huts, pottery, tools, and even an elaborate cemetery. The discovery was made not far from the famous Temple of Seti I in the southern province of Sohag.
This is the boat of Re during its journey through the underworld in the tomb of Seti I of the 19th dynasty.. The day sun idepicted in the boat surrounded by the coils of Mehen (a serpent) and accompanied by Hw Sia who are the personifications of creation and wisdom. The day sun was depicted as a scarab whilst the night sun was depicted as a ram. Both represented the cycle from dawn to dusk.
The Egyptian Osireion, Abydos, 19th Dynasty, ca. 1280 B.C.E.
This huge cenotaph is behind the temple of Seti I, and was built to represent both the Primeval Mound and the tomb of Osiris (god of the afterlife, underworld, and the dead).
The ‘Primeval Mound’, according to Egyptian mythology, was the first land to rise above the primeval ocean at the dawn of time. It remained the center of the cosmos, and a place of everlasting creation. Osiris was strongly associated with the Primeval Mound by the New Kingdom. Some Underworld Books show the souls of Osiris and Ra meeting in bird form at the top of the Mound in order to bring new life to the dead. The resurrected Osiris was shown enthroned on top of the Mound at the center of the underworld.
The Osireion, the largest cenotaph built, is on an artificial island surrounded by a moat (mythologically, the primeral waters) where water was channeled through a subterranean pipeline. On this moat stand two rows of large granite pillars, each weighing 55 tons. Two square depressions on the island (mythologically the first land in the primeral waters) mark the site of a canopic chest and the sarcophagus. Although now open, the Osireion was originally sealed off, likely under an earthen mound. Outside the great enclosure walls to the north lies the real entrance to the cenotaph. This image may help in understanding the layout of the Osireion.
