With the help of data of the Cluster mission of the European Space Agency (ESA), A team of scientists could create the first registry of a kind of song that land 'touches' when hit by a solar storm. This is reported on November 20, 2019 the portal specialized in astronomy Earth Sky
He video that allows people to hear the 'song' of the Earth was broadcast on YouTube by the American Geophysical Union (AGU) on November 18, 2019. Until this November 20 the clip adds more than 145 400 reproductions.
The description of video explains that the sound is generated in the magnetic field Earth's collision with the solar storm. The song allows you to hear "a sound of the magnetic waves"that are generated in the collision of the storm with the first region of the magnetic environment of our planet.
He video, which lasts 43 seconds consists of two clips. The first, says the description on YouTube, was shot during a calm space weather and the second during a solar storm.

"The sounds were obtained by transforming the frequencies of these magnetic waves in sound waves"that can be heard by the human ear. It is the first time that this magnetic 'song' that the Earth produces during a solar storm was recorded.
The Cluster mission of the ESA composed of four ships that orbit the Earth and investigate the magnetic field of our planet, as well as its interaction with the solar wind which is a flow of particles which are released by the Sun to the Solar System, explains the AGU in a statement.
He data analysis shows that during a collision magnetic waves are released "which are much more complex than we thought before," according to Lucile Turc, a former ESA researcher who now works at the University of Helsinki (Finland) from where he made the discovery.
