Music of the Sun

Scientists at the University of Sheffield have recorded the 'music' produced by the magnet ic field of the Sun. The huge magnetic loops coil away from the outer of the Sun's atmosphere, vibrate like strings on a musical instrument (gutar). Professor Robertus von Fay-Siebenburgen said: "It was strangely beautiful and exciting to hear these noises for the first time from such a large and powerful source. It is a sort of music as it has harmonics. It is providing us with a new way of learning about the sun and giving us a new insight into the physics that goes on at in the sun's outer layers where temperatures reach milions of degrees." Here is video where you can hear noises from the sun.
