The sensation of listening to a 5-minute audio recording could well be compared to the effect of watching a good horror movie.

In the run-up to Halloween, the European Space Agency (ESA) released a creepy 5-minute recording of what the Earth's magnetic field sounds like , writes Science Alert.

The audio recording, from which a chill runs down the spine, we owe to scientists from the Technical University of Denmark. The researchers used magnetic signals measured by the ESA Swarm satellite mission dedicated to the study of the magnetic field. As a result, scientists converted the signals into audio and released a creepy video on the eve of Saints' Day.

As a result, the 5-minute video is more like a soundtrack to a horror movie – terrible squeaks, crackles, and some sounds can even be compared to the breathing of a stranger on the phone. Users who have already listened to the recording on the Web claim that listening to it caused them a kind of “numbness”, and some even felt a “bizarre tingling in the spine”.

Note that since the opening of the recording, it was broadcast three times a day on the square in Copenhagen in Denmark. According to Klaus Nielsen, a scientist from the Technical University of Denmark, he and his colleagues managed to gain access to an interesting sound system, which consists of three dozen speakers dug into the ground on Nielsen Square. As a result, he and his colleagues decided not only to play the recording, but also to accompany it with a video sequence – the frames show a geomagnetic storm that arose as a result of a solar flare on November 3, 2011.

Note that the internal magnetism of the Earth (magnetosphere) creates a comet-shaped field around the surface of the Earth. It provides protection against dangerous solar and cosmic particle radiation, and also protects the atmosphere from erosion due to the solar wind.
