Sasuke: I don’t have a “type.” I don’t waste time thinking of such frivolous things.
Sasuke’s inner mind: Actually blonde hair is really great in contrast to tanned skin … Eyes that look like a perfect ocean wave captured in a time bottle of indigo… Chiseled chest… Broad shoulders… Stupid, bright, grinning face, whiskered cheeks, the name Naruto…
That’s the sound of the Earth “singing,” as recorded by the awesomely-named Storm Probe mission — a couple of satellites investigating the famous Van Allen belts, intense radiation zones that surround our planet like a doughnut. The Storm Probes, launched last month, are mapping the density of charged particles.
The whale song is an audio rendering of radio waves captured by the Probes and caused by the two Van Allen belts, inner and outer. You don’t actually hear the audio in space, of course, but the radio waves — known as “chorus” — are for real.
Visual artist Tim Wakefield created this limited edition artwork from sound waves captured in audio of Duran Duran’s “Hungry Like the Wolf”. Each canvas is signed by the band with proceeds going to War Child UK. Available here: http://duran.io/2gKVN4T
